Preventing Sexual Violence in Colorado: Strengthening Communities to Stop Sexual Violence BEFORE it Occurs

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is using an innovative approach to prevent rape and other forms of sexual violence across the state. With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, Colorado is working collaboratively with diverse stakeholders, including the state sexual violence coalition, educational institutions, law enforcement entities, rape crisis centers, and community organizations to stop sexual violence BEFORE it occurs. These collaborations have strengthened the state’s sexual violence prevention efforts by leveraging resources and enhancing prevention opportunities.
