Primary Prevention Education Component

Primary Prevention Education’s main focal point is preventing sexual violence before it occurs. The Prevention Program at La Piñon provides outreach which seeks to increase awareness and knowledge, as well as to change attitudes and behaviors that promote sexual violence. One of the main goals of the program is to create change that will prevent sexual violence.

Education is based on addressing the underlying issues that result in rape and sexual violence and may include some of the following topics:

  • gender roles
  • bullying and sexual violence
  • media advocacy
  • consent and coercion
  • dating violence
  • drug facilitated sexual assault
  • healthy relationships
  • child abuse prevention
  • sexual harassment
  • role of bystanders
  • oppression
  • the law as it relates to sexual assault
  • masculinity and sexual violence
  • primary prevention of sexual violence
