BEST Party Model: Shaping Party Environments to Prevent Sexual Violence @ Webinar
Mar 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

To register: http://conferences.bwjp.org/webconferencedetail.aspx?confid=367

Presenter: Ed Heisler, Executive Director, Men As Peacemakers; Co-Coordinator, Minnesota Men’s Action Network (MN-MAN): Alliance to Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence
Description: For many college students, parties and college are like books and classes. They just go together. Students come to college to earn a degree, but college parties are an integral part of the recreational and social experience. Unfortunately, though, parties frequently include domination, disrespect, or use of sexual or physical violence against women. This can devastate individuals and negatively impact the entire campus community. The reality is that men are responsible for most of these damaging behaviors, and women are left to deal with party environments that become uncomfortable and dangerous. The party scene, however, does not have to be overshadowed by discomfort, fear, and violence against women. Men As Peacemakers, through its MN-MAN programming, has worked with students to create the BEST Party Model—an innovative approach to sexual assault prevention on college campuses.  BEST involves college men and women in shaping safe, respectful, and fun party environments that will help prevent sexual violence.  This webinar will provide an introduction to the BEST Party Model, and explain what students are doing to create Party Revolution to prevent sexual violence.
Learning Objectives:

  • Understand factors that contribute to a campus environments across the country where an average of 1 in 5 women experience an attempted or completed rape.
  • Describe the importance of college party environments as a platform for the primary prevention of sexual and domestic violence.
  • Define a primary prevention strategy allowing individuals to shape social environments, including parties, to prevent sexual and domestic violence.
  • Define how the BEST Party Model anchors an innovative, campus-wide strategy, to promote gender equity and prevent sexual and domestic violence.

Improving existing, and creating new gendered violence prevention programs and policies on college campuses: An organizing approach @ Webinar
May 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Description: In January 2014, President Obama announced the launch of a new task force to prevent sexual violence on college campuses. Citing that 1 in 5 women on college campuses have experienced some form of sexual violence during their academic careers, but only 12 percent of student victims report the assault. The President has called this epidemic “totally unacceptable.”

Urging a fundamental shift in attitudes around sexual violence, the President’s actions are timely considering the work of Futures Without Violence Campus Fellows across the country. Launched in the fall of 2013, the Campus Leadership Program aimed to spur creative, student-led action to change university policy, enhance curriculum, raise awareness and shift campus culture.

In this interactive webinar, we will share what our Campus Fellows have accomplished this year within their diverse academic fields. Additionally, we will open the forum to students with experience or interest in this work, and brainstorm programmatic, policy-oriented, curricular, institutional, legal, and subversive tactics to improve prevention and intervention programs on your college campus.
