Violence Prevention & Advocacy

Our mission

The Violence Prevention & Advocacy Program leads the efforts of UW Bothell and Cascadia College to create a community that is free of sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, sexual harassment, and other related experiences. Our prevention work is focused on addressing root causes of harm and collaborating with our community to create a culture of consent, respect, and healthy relationships. Our survivor advocacy work seeks to create space, community, and support for people directly and indirectly impacted by violence and harassment. To all survivors within our community: we see you, and we believe you.

We envision a UW Bothell and Cascadia College community free of violence and harassment. We strive for a community grounded in respect, support, and social justice.
