Prevention of Sexual Violence

QSpot Awarded Grant for

Sexual Violence Prevention

QSpot is proud to announce that we have been awarded a grant to provide regional coordination of a statewide project to reduce and eliminate sexual violence for LGBTQIA+ community members.  Sexual violence impacts every community and affects people of all ages, genders, and sexual orientations.

Support for this community initiative is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Rape Prevention and Prevention Education (RPE) grant funds, administered by the Department of Children and Families, Division on Women and implemented by the Rutgers University School of Public Health.

Sexual violence (SV) is a serious problem that can have lasting, harmful effects on victims, survivors, their families, friends, and communities. CDC’s goal is to stop SV from happening in the first place.

The project is divided into 5 New Jersey regions:  North, South, Central, North Shore, and South Shore.  QSpot will be coordinating the project in the North Shore region encompassing Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

QSpot will hold their first meeting of local stakeholders in December.  If you are interested in learning more, or joining the initiative, please email info@jsqspot.org.
