In their piece in Health Affairs, Carolyn Wang Kong of Blue Shield of California Foundation, and PI's Lisa Fujie Parks and Alisha Somji of Prevention Institute, describe the Foundation's two-part approach to transform domestic violence prevention from within and beyond the domestic violence field. The Safety Through Connection community of practice represents the “beyond” approach.
“Together, these two cohorts will provide valuable insights into how power, systems, community, and collaboration can come together to prevent violence in communities. The ‘within and beyond’ approach allows us to learn about the levers and incentives for change across multiple systems, while unifying diverse efforts toward the shared goal of ending violence.”
