The Chicago Prevention Alliance (CPA) unites prevention educators through collaboration to end sexual harm against or by young people.

Mission: We unite prevention educators through collaboration to end sexual harm against or by young people.  
Vision: We envision a Chicago where no young person is sexually harmed. 

Core Beliefs: 

  • The Chicago Prevention Alliance believes in using research, evaluation and data to inform primary prevention strategies. 
  • CPA seeks to utilize complementary and diverse skill sets already embodied within its member organizations, and will partner with local schools, youth-serving organizations, advocates and political entities charged with ensuring safe and equitable education and programming for children and youth. 
  • CPA seeks to engage youth and survivor feedback directly to inform our prevention strategies. 
  • CPA uses its collective voice to amplify our individual advocacy efforts, and seeks to create innovative and effective primary prevention strategies collectively that can be scaled to a larger audience. 
  • The work of CPA is not a replacement of the individual services provided by its members, but an enrichment and complement.
