The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, in collaboration with Oregon Health Authority, is launching the Prevention Through Liberation grant project. $72,811 will be awarded for between 1-3 culturally specific sexual violence prevention projects to increase culturally specific prevention efforts in Oregon anti-violence programs. OCADSV recognizes that oppression has pervasive impacts on risk factors for sexual violence and that the impacts of systemic oppression place historically marginalized communities at greater risk. Most sexual violence prevention efforts in Oregon utilize valuable yet limited models that fall short of directly addressing oppression as a root cause of sexual violence. To help close this gap in prevention practice, OCADSV Prevention Through Liberation project will award grants to advance promising prevention efforts that address oppression as a root cause for sexual violence.
Purpose: To fund culturally specific prevention projects that identify promising sexual violence prevention models focused on historically marginalized communities:
- Identify prevention efforts in marginalized communities
- Create prevention practices that address systemic oppression as a root cause for sexual violence
- Strengthen prevention practices in historically marginalized communities
Priority Funding Categories: Priority will be given to projects focused on improving prevention practice capacity by/for the following groups:
- Transgender and bisexual people
- People with disabilities
- Immigrants and refugees
- Indigenous people
- People of color
- Deaf and hard of hearing people
- 501(c)3 community-based sexual violence/dual that are current OCADSV member programs.
- 501(c)3 culturally-specific programs working to end sexual violence in Oregon.
- Tribal programs.
