"The more clearly we see the past, the more clearly we’ll see the present — and be equipped to improve it." - Zinn Education Project
The exciting work of prevention requires us to reflect upon our past efforts to end domestic and sexual violence in order to carry the lessons we've learned forward as we build beloved communities based on hope, fairness, peace and equity. "The context in which we do our work may change in terms of social and political climate, funding, and the ever-expanding evidence-based, but our goal to prevent violence remains the same" (Continuing the Dialogue, CDC, July 2019).
This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights new resources that explore how lessons learned over years of prevention efforts can inform our strategies for moving our work forward. Key resources include our upcoming September webinar, the soon to be released Policy-Based Prevention DELTA FOCUS story, the Innovation section of the PreventIPV website, as well as newly released podcasts and featured prevention tools.
