Strategy Definitions

Strengthen Policies

This includes policies within organizations that address the organizational culture and practices to prevent SV/DV by both reducing risks and uplifting protective factors. It may also include strengthening policies within organizations, suggesting changes to public policy, offering public policy recommendations.

Enhance Partnerships

Formal or information partnerships to collaborate to align messages, activism, education, and policies and practices as a means to raise community awareness and strengthen the collective impact of SV/DV prevention. Through partnerships, develop a ‘coordinated community response’ that engages multi-layered action, cooperation, and solidarity around a shared goal or purpose. This may include coordinating and enhancing existing partnerships.

Learning Circles

Also called Communities of Practice, engaging in collective learning through convening or joining meetings, committees, conferences, etc. at national, state or regional, or local levels, and explore shared resources (ex. money, programming, messaging) and strategies to leverage SV/DV prevention efforts.

Build Champions

Intentional support and development of individuals and leaders in the community who model and advocate for SV/DV prevention.

Provide Resources

Providing materials (ex. handouts, posters), services (ex. academic advisors, hotline numbers), financial support (ex. money set aside for SV/DV prevention work), time (ex. setting specific times throughout the year to directly talk about SV/DV and how to prevent it), or other assets (ex. connect to other community SV/DV prevention efforts) that address and prevent SV/DV.

Educate & Train

Formal educational programs and trainings (e.g., webinars, keynote speeches, in person trainings) and informal education (ex. team meetings, off the field mentoring) that focus on two components: 1) responding to SV/DV and 2) prevention SV/DV.

Measure Impact

Formal evaluation (ex. surveys) of the outcomes of SV/DV prevention strategies (policies, resources, programs) to provide data that shows evidence of change. This also includes informal evaluation (ex. participant feedback, focus groups) of the outcomes of SV/DV prevention strategies.

Raise Awareness

Specific planned campaigns, pledges, print/posters or multi-media, and social media share graphics that aim to raise awareness about SV/DV and/or how to prevent it in order to mobilize for a purpose/action; may also include engaging national/state media platforms effectively to increase awareness/empower a wider-audience to action.


"The #MeToo movement has brought significant attention to the widespread nature of sexual misconduct, harassment and abuse. Now the conversation is shifting to prevention. We’re proud to invest in these innovative projects with concrete strategies that support survivors and make communities healthier and safer."
