So What, Now What? Using Social Media Activism to Inform Power-Conscious Prevention of Gender-Based Violence

Survivors have turned to social media to share their experiences with sexual violence. As a result campuses are finding accounts that describe instances of perpetration in their community. Instead of just reacting to these accounts, could they be used to inform community change? In this session, attendees will learn about one campus’s power-conscious approach to addressing sexual violence, and how they may partner with their campus activists and social media accounts to enact lasting change.
