Beat the Punch

A project of the Women’s Shelter Program of San Luis Obispo and the Domestic Violence Task Force of San Luis Obispo. Funded by the DELTA California Project.

The Beat the Punch campaign works to prevent intimate partner violence (IPV) and create lasting community change. The goal of the program is to create a culture of “courageous bystanders” in college settings where students and staff:
  • Encourage respect for women and equality in intimate relationships
  • Interrupt situations that lead to IPV
  • Safely respond to IPV when it occurs
  • Respond in a way that is helpful

The campaign works to:
  • Reduce risk factors
  • Strengthen protective factors linked to IPV committed by young men. The campaign addresses these factors on the individual, relationship and community levels in line with the Public Health Approach Social Ecological Model

PCADV's primary prevention team is available to provide ideas for implementation or a more detailed review. Contact the prevention team at 1-800-932-4632.
