Preventing Sexual Violence in Minnesota: Expanding Scope and Partnerships to Stop Sexual Violence BEFORE it Occurs

The Minnesota Department of Health has enlarged its network of partners and broadened the scope of its sexual violence prevention initiatives to reflect its understanding of sexual violence as a multi-faceted public health problem affecting everyone, directly or indirectly, and resulting in long-term social and economic costs. With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, Minnesota is working collaboratively with diverse stakeholders, including the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA), Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women, Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition, Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Office of Justice Programs, Men as Peacemakers, The Advocates for Human Rights, and numerous community organizations, as well as through the Sexual Violence Prevention Network and Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force to stop sexual violence BEFORE it occurs.
