With funding from the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy, the Coalition Ending Gender-Based Violence is leading a project to engage people across King County to better understand how communities can prevent domestic, sexual, and family violence outside of systems of policing and punishment.
Mapping Prevention 2020
Mapping Prevention 2020, a short-term participatory action research project, aims to create and share community data on existing efforts to prevent violence, as well as opportunities for strategic expansion and future visioning with a focus on strategies that address racism and its intersections with sexism and other forms of oppression.
The coalition is currently conducting a county-wide survey to gather public opinion and learn more about the resources people want and need to prevent violence in their own communities. Survey responses will be used to create a map of community-led organizations or groups in King County that are working to keep people safe and prevent violence.
The project also includes in-depth interviews with local organizations to learn from their experiences and visions for public spending.
The Mapping Prevention 2020 survey is open to people who live or work in King County ages 18 and older. If you agree to participate, you will be asked a series of questions related to community-led violence prevention, including your personal experiences responding to violence.
The survey will ask you to give input on how communities can build knowledge and use resources to prevent violence.
The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.
