Media & Technology
Violence ends when we shift the prevailing climate – when we create social change in our community. Social change happens by shifting the conversation, changing the language we use, and opening dialogue with people who normally would not want to join the conversation, or feel that the conversation relates to them.
Communicating in the modern age means becoming familiar with media: the press, the world wide web, social media sites, the written word, audio, and video. WCASA hopes to provide our members and concerned allies with information related to spreading the word about sexual assault and promoting prevention efforts.
