Show Notes

How we engage in sexual violence prevention is often framed by our own ways of looking at and moving through the world. But can we flip that perspective and use prevention frameworks to help us navigate our lives outside of our work?

In this episode, Jess Clark, Director of Sexual Violence Prevention for the New Mexico Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs interviews Mo Lewis, Prevention Coordinator for The National Sexual Violence Resource Center on risk and protective factors, new ways of looking at prevention tools, and how those tools intersect with anti-oppression efforts. 
Mo Lewis is the Prevention Specialist for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), providing training and technical assistance to state and territory sexual assault coalitions, departments of health, community programs, and other organizations working to develop and evaluate comprehensive sexual violence prevention strategies. In addition to sexual assault prevention, Mo has experience working in HIV prevention, youth empowerment within LGBTQ communities, sexual health promotion, and program evaluation. Mo is a co-author of the FLASH curriculum, a comprehensive sexual health education curriculum for middle and high school students, and co-founded a violence prevention coalition in King County, WA

The quote Mo couldn't remember! "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."
