Hello, my name is Miranda Martone and I am the founder of the Sexual Violence Prevention Association.
I am passionate about my work because sexual violence is preventable and as a survivor, I know how important it is to prevent it.
I am proud to be a Millenium Fellow because I am excited to convene with others in my community to work together to have a greater social impact. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sexual Violence Prevention Association
The mission of the Sexual Violence Prevention Association is to encourage and empower institutions to prevent sexual violence by transforming and systemizing effective policies, programs, and practices. We accomplish this by rating sexual violence policies, procedures, and programs at colleges and universities. Our rating system is flexible to all university types and sizes and is the only standardized measurement for campus sexual violence prevention. This empowers prospective students, active students, employees, donors, and others to make informed decisions about what colleges to interact with it.
