Sport is Part of the Solution to End Sexual and Domestic Violence – Watch the Web Conference

With millions of young people participating in sport every year, sport is uniquely positioned to take action toward ending sexual and domestic violence. Sport develops young people by teaching skills, values, and practices which can get to the root causes of sexual and domestic violence to prevent it.

Speakers Alan Heisterkamp of the University of Northern Iowa, Valencia Peterson of Open Door Abuse Awareness & Prevention, and Ward Urion of LifeWire will share how they have been able to develop partnerships with school programs, coaches, and athletes to help implement prevention strategies in athletics.

Sport can be part of the solution to ending sexual and domestic violence. Join us February 13, 2019 at 3:30 pm Eastern as RALIANCE partners with PreventConnect for an informative webinar on how you can harness the power and influence of sport to prevent sexual and domestic violence in your community. 

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Identify key elements of how secondary and youth athletic programs can instill personal responsibility, promote respectful behavior, in working to prevent sexual violence and relationship abuse.

2. Describe the values of partnerships between sexual and domestic violence prevention experts and high school sport programs and coaches.
