PreventConnect Web ConferenceRegistration has opened for the next PreventConnect web conference titled Under Control: Countering the Value Placed on Power and Control Through Norms Change.
Countering norms that reinforce power and control over others is an opportunity to prevent violence in a lasting, comprehensive way. This web conference highlights specific strategies and efforts that seek to change norms related to gendered violence. Different norms will be examined with regard to their historical context, distinct challenges, and opportunities for collaborative work.
