Rape Prevention and Education Program Tribal Listening Session

Dec 8th, 2022

Please join us for a virtual 90-minute Zoom listening session to share your lived experience, needs, and ideas related to preventing sexual violence in your community on Thursday, December 8, 2:00-3:30 PM EST. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would like to hear from American Indian and Alaska Native tribes, as well as urban Indian communities, about ways to prevent sexual violence in their communities.

CDC will be hosting a listening session on December 8, 2022, to gain insight from your experiences, learn from your ideas and hear more about how we can be a partner in addressing the impacts of sexual violence. Your inputs will inform the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, which focuses on the primary prevention of sexual violence.

If you are an urban Indian leader or community member, urban Indian and tribal sexual assault coalition, or someone who has been impacted by sexual violence in Indian Country, we welcome your attendance.

Specifically, we are interested to hear your thoughts on:

  • How and why sexual violence impacts your community
  • Strengths and barriers to prevent sexual violence in your community
  • How your community partners with tribal sexual assault coalitions
  • Your ideas on how we can strengthen our partnership and what the most effective solutions are to addressing the challenges associated with sexual violence
