Prevention Framework

UCLA CARE Program is Dedicated to eradicating sexual violence on campus through a series of frameworks. Through these frameworks, we are able to provide comprehensive prevention education as well as advocacy/healing programs that center the intersections of identities.

6 Pillars of Primary Prevention

  1. Challenge All Forms of Oppression

    UCLA CARE recognizes that sexual violence is not an individual issue and instead is connected to all forms of oppression including sexism, racism, homophobia etc. In order to address sexual violence on college campuses as well as in society, all forms of oppression must also be challenged.

  2. Be a Responsive Bystander (Upstander)

    To be a bystander is to be unresponsive to an incident or event. In order to protect community members from harm, one must participate and see themselves as part of the solution to a problem also known as an upstander.

  3. Support All Survivors

    While we recognize that some individuals are more disproportionately affected by sexual violence, anyone can still be a survivor regardless of gender, sexuality, race, and class. In order to eradicate sexual violence from college campuses and society, healing services such as counseling, advocacy, and healing program must support all survivors of sexual violence.
  4. Model Healthy Relationships
  5. Practice and Teach Consent
  6. Promote Healthy Sexuality
