Collective Power: A Practical Blueprint for Sexual Assault Programs to Create Community Partnerships & Collaboration
Resource from ValorUS, promoted by Prevent IPV
“Community organizing and fostering partnerships with sectors and agencies beyond our anti-sexual violence movement is a familiar practice for rape crisis centers. There have been decades and generations of community organizing and solidarity led by movement leaders, with complex interventions made by Black, brown, and indigenous movement makers whose wisdom and legacy inspire us.
In order to expand our local sexual assault response efforts, this blueprint provides a nonprescriptive roadmap to how we can build collaborative relationships with community partners within and outside the anti-sexual violence movement. It identifies best practices, models, and resources for creating, encouraging, and preserving community collaborations both in conventional and innovative ways, hence strengthening the capacity of our sexual assault programs and bridging the gaps with other social service organizations and institutions.”
