Of particular note, their region has a high season in the Summer (our Winter!) where the tourist population increases 500% and the prevalence of crimes, including sexual assault, increases tremendously, as well. We shared ideas of community mobilization and brainstormed on potential community partners and social media campaigns.
CAPS Hauraki also shared about their sexual violence primary prevention campaign called ‘Right2BSafe’. The Right2BSafe campaign is a campaign to raise awareness about child sexual abuse and offer concrete strategies for prevention. 17 local champions have stepped up to front the campaign on 12 posters.
It’s exciting to see the work that is taking place across the globe to respond to and prevent sexual assault!
