From Scandal to Social Change

May 10, 2013



Using recent public child sexual abuse allegations in youth sports and youth serving organizations as the backdrop, Yvonne Cournoyer, Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator at the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA), will lead a discussion of what needs to change to create safe environments for children.  

Yvonne will provide a brief case study of recent “scandals” to illustrate the gaps in current practice that allow sexual abuse to occur at such alarming rates. Yvonne will discuss that effecting the changes that will prevent children from ever experiencing sexual harm in these settings will require social change at all levels of society—from individuals to institutions. You will leave with knowledge and tools you can use in your own life and to work with parents and youth serving organizations to proactively prevent child sexual abuse.
