Response works with our community in the upper Roaring Fork Valley– with schools, businesses, community associations, judicial system partners, and faith-based organizations – to end domestic and sexual abuse. We strive to change the community conversation around domestic and sexual abuse and to drive social change by encouraging bystander intervention and collective intolerance of abuse, and highlighting the reality that these are community-wide problems that deserve community-wide solutions. We provide prevention education programming in middle schools from Basalt to Aspen.
