OUR WORK AND IMPACT

Cal-VEX Study: California Study on Violence EXperiences Across the Lifespan

Violence remains at epidemic proportions in the U.S., including gender-based violence [partner violence, sexual harassment and assault, exploitation], community violence and policing, and firearm-related violence. We are partnering with key experts and stakeholders from the fields of safety, health and wellness across the state of California and nationally to undertake state-wide surveillance of violence across the lifespan, and use of research and surveillance to guide prevention programming for the state. Guidance for novel prevention programming efforts include work with sport systems, health systems, and schools. Efforts to date have led to studies on :

  • Prevalence of Sexual Harassment and Assault in California
  • Engaging with Sport to Prevent Sexual Violence
  • Systematic Review of the Literature on Sexual Violence in the US
  • State-wide Assessment of Violence Across the Lifespan in California
