Prevention is the belief that we can stop violence before it happens.  Prevention is the idea of sharing tools, resources, and ideas for social change to encourage healthy relationships.  It’s about finding alternative methods to conflicts rather than fists, fights and weapons.  Prevention does not hurt others through power, control, jealousy or pain.  Prevention is founded in peace and compassion with education and advocacy leading the way.

Prevention can stop the cycle of intimate partner violence and sexual assault; we just have to opt4 it.  Join the effort and opt4 a safer and non-violent community.  Opt4 being a proactive bystander and opt4 peace.
