The Summit is a capacity building event which is designed to support communities to implement primary prevention strategies specific to domestic violence, sexual assault and/or dating violence and stalking within each community. Community teams who have participated in the Summit include representatives from those participating in the Governor’s Choose Respect Initiative marches, DELTA communities, Behavioral Health Rural Grantees and communities funded through the Council’s community prevention coordinator initiative.
Workshops developed for the Summit are designed to build baseline knowledge in the area of primary prevention work and include: building blocks for prevention and successful strategies for implementing and evaluating community-based programming. Time is set aside each day during the Summit for community teams to develop a specific community prevention strategy and/or plan that they will begin implementing following the conference. Technical assistance for communities will be available to assure that the plans generated during the conference are able to be realized.
