State Policy Playbook for Ending Campus Sexual Assault

Added Friday, August 25, 2017 by Action Alliance

Know Your IX's State Policy Playbook outlines key reforms that students, advocates, and state policymakers can pursue to support survivors on campus, keep students safe, and end gender-based violence in school. Although Title IX and the Clery Act require schools to take action to address gender-based violence, these federal laws set only a floor for schools' responsibilities to create safe and equitable learning environments. States can and should do more to keep schools from sweeping sexual violence under the rug.

Summary: Virginia’s Plan for Primary Prevention of Intimate Partner Violence

Added Tuesday, February 21, 2012 by Action Alliance

The Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (Action Alliance), with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), entered into a Cooperative Agreement for the purpose of building capacity to prevent IPV in communities throughout the Commonwealth. The Cooperative Agreement, called DELTA (Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances), began in 2003 and continues today.

A major aspect of DELTA has been development of the statewide “Virginia Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Plan,” based on a systematic 10-step planning process called “Getting to Outcomes.” The goal was to create and implement evidence-based strategies that prevent first-time perpetration of intimate partner violence. This document summarizes the 5 goals developed during the planning process.

Supporting Multilingual and Bicultural Rural Advocates

Added Friday, June 03, 2016 by Action Alliance

Rural dual/multi-service advocacy programs that are able to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to sexual violence survivors make services for all rural survivors more inclusive and accessible. Multilingual and bicultural advocates are an important part of rural agencies being able to provide these culturally and linguistically appropriate services. A multilingual advocate is someone who can understand and speak more than one language. Often, multilingual advocates are bicultural as well. A bicultural advocate is someone who balances the cultural attitudes and customs of two countries or ethnic groups, usually someone who has moved to the United States from another country or someone whose parents moved to the United States from another country. Advocacy programs often struggle to find, hire, and retain multilingual and bicultural rural advocates. This is why it is important to understand who these advocates are, where they come from, and how we can create a supportive work environment for them. This paper is intended for rural dual/multi-service agencies looking for suggestions on how they can support multilingual and bicultural rural advocates.
