Public education at Anova is closely linked to community outreach and mobilization.  We educate through training and workshops to high school students, professionals, and community organizations.  We engage the community with difficult issues like rape culture, sexual violence, healthy relationships and acting out against all forms of violence.  Our visibility in London and Middlesex County creates opportunities to support community members to advocate against sexual violence.  And through our outreach program, we participate in and run many events throughout the year including Take Back the Night, among others, that brings the issue of sexual violence to the forefront, where it is no longer invisible or silenced.  This empowers community members to speak up, act out, get involved and create change.  

Public education is crucial for raising awareness with individuals and mobilizing them to become social change agents.  Engaging men is crucial in helping end the struggle of sexual violence because it isn’t a series of isolated incidents but occurs within patriarchal systems that use power and dominance as tools of oppression.  And it won’t end unless we work together to change attitudes and create safe spaces where those called to action can mobilize to discover and empower their voices and take their roles as leaders.  We need young men and women to define for themselves who they want to be and to think critically about the influences of culture, stereotypes, and media.  Everyone has a role to play in ending sexual violence.  Everyone can make a difference.
