National Conference Focuses on Prevention of Gendered Violence

For the 3rd time, the Oregon Sexual Assault Task Force  and Men Can Stop Rape are sponsoring a national conference that focuses on the prevention of gendered violence. Roots of Change: Social Justice and Media, which is being held at the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon, November 2-4, explores contributors to and prevention strategies for gendered sexual violence, with "a strong focus on media, entertainment, and pop culture." Keynote speakers include Jessica Valenti of feministing.com and Jaclyn Freeman of WAM! (Women, Action & the Media), and there are a variety of workshops, film screenings, and other events.

As humane educators we know about the connection between media and culture and the perpetuation of gendered violence. This conference provides a great opportunity to learn more, especially about prevention and how other organizations are working to change destructive systems.
