1. Introduction

Issue #2: July 2010

You’ve seen the theme:
Imagine our lives without sexual violence or exploitation
Many of us in Minnesota share that vision and hope. In August 2007, supporters from across the state created the framework for the statewide plan to prevent sexual violence. Since then, many of us have served on Action Teams, the Sexual Violence Prevention Network, and other initiatives to give "legs" to the plan. Minnesota's work is pioneering, and we are considered a national leader. We have momentum; we are planting the seeds for some spectacular growth. Please help us grow more friends of the sexual violence prevention movement by attending our August 10 meeting of all the Action Teams, Retreat and Launch participants, and others who are committed to prevention. Help us move closer to our vision!
