The Rosemary Project
Join the sexual violence prevention movement today by taking the Rosemary Pledge. Prevention does not always need to be a huge action or major changes, and the Rosemary Pledge is your agreement to begin taking small, actionable steps towards prevention.
Community-level change is similar to starting a garden. Both can feel overwhelming, confusing, challenging, expensive, and even impossible. For instance, how do you know whether to buy seeds or a potted plant? What tools do you need? Is your soil right? How often do you water it? You might ask similar questions when thinking about sexual violence prevention. Is prevention work already happening in my community, or should I start something? Are there prevention tools available? Is my community ready for making and sustaining change?
Just like a garden, you can start small with prevention. You can grow and nourish one rosemary plant or take one step to prevent sexual violence. MNCASA offers a wide range of tools and resources for sexual violence prevention. Take a look and choose your one small step—your one rosemary plant. Take the Rosemary Pledge telling us what action step you’re going to take to prevent sexual violence below.
Together, we can create communities where everyone can thrive and grow.
