Washington State has embarked on the implementation of a contemplative, systematic plan focused on moving us toward our ultimate goal. Prevention, and more specifically, social change work were identified as essential components to include in our range of activities.
All of us together have designed service structures, implemented new strategies (community development) and provided services to survivors in addition to educating ourselves and communities about the multi-faceted issue of sexual violence. It has been rewarding yet challenging.
As we look at the beauty, promise and hope that the spring flowers provide it is imperative that we celebrate our achievements while looking towards the future. With luck and perseverance the next decade will bring even greater societal change.
