Published Date
January, 2009

As part of CDC’s DELTA program, the Rhode Island State Steering Committee developed this domestic violence primary prevention plan as the first step in a long-term process to alter cultural norms, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that support domestic violence. The plan identifies evidence-informed prevention strategies targeting men and teens, as well as several ways to improve community-based organizations' and community members' ability to use and evaluate prevention strategies.
