PREVENTION EDUCATION

What is primary prevention in relationship violence? According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, primary prevention means stopping relationship violence before it occurs.

"Our education and awareness efforts are focused on prevention and improved community response," is the second part of our mission statement. Our Prevention & Outreach Coordinator provides prevention education to children of all ages in local daycares, elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools all over Albany County. Topics are age-appropriate and can range from healthy friendships and families to healthy relationships and consent. 

CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION

In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced blue pinwheels as the national symbol for child abuse prevention. SAFE Project recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month each April by planting blue pinwheels and other activities in the community.

TEEN DATING VIOLENCE AWARENESS

When presentations were largely halted due to the pandemic, SAFE staff created this video to address Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, which is recognized each February.

Wyoming Campaigns

In 2015, the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (WCADVSA) launched a statewide awareness and prevention campaign called Be the Solution in 26 communities across the state. The campaign message of BE THE SOLUTION: learn about it. talk about it. change it. focused on prevention and awareness efforts surrounding sexual assault in Wyoming. It challenged Wyomingites to have conversations about the issue and to challenge values and social norms that allow sexual assault to occur.
