Preventing Sexual Violence: Stories from the Field
With funding from CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and Safe States Alliance have been working on a joint project to enhance the role of state health leadership in sexual violence prevention and help promote the visibility of the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) Program both within states and at the national level.
Preventing Sexual Violence: Stories from the Field, a collection of 20 states’ RPE programs’ approaches to sexual violence prevention across the country, highlights state program successes, underscores the importance of RPE funding, and provides examples for sexual violence prevention practice. Colorado's sexual violence prevention program at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is one of the featured states. Access the report from Colorado here.
