Considering the many drivers of sexual and domestic violence, it’s clear that one sector or field cannot prevent the issue alone. In 2018, the Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) expanded its commitment to end domestic violence by focusing on root causes of violence and supporting communities in preventing domestic violence. In this web conference, participants will hear from practitioners and advocates from two community partnerships in California, supported by BSCF, who are building their capacity to implement culturally-rooted prevention strategies.
