At the National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) in September, one of the workshops offered will be about how musicians can help to change social norms. Ashley Maier, prevention program coordinator on Oregon’s Sexual Assault Task Force, and the band The Material will put together a panel of musicians who will make a case for and explore ways to engage musicians in the prevention of violence and the promotion of healthy relationships.
Some of the panelists include Brad Perry, from the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, and his fellow band members from Worn In Red. The discussion will involve the way in which music shapes environments and promotes behaviors. Conference attendees will learn how to build partnerships with musicians.
