Prevention Messaging

Date: August 4, 2022

Time: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Price: Free


Domestic violence is preventable – but it’s not always understood that way. Advocates, community leaders, and preventionists can help by communicating effectively about what prevention looks like, where and how it’s happening, and why it matters for everyone. Join us for a webinar with Berkeley Media Studies Group to learn more about developing an overall strategy, identifying key audiences and messengers, and developing impactful prevention messages that can help your organization describe how you’re preventing violence, and how audiences can support your work. 


Pamela Mejia MS, MPH

Pamela leads qualitative and quantitative analyses of how the media portray public health and social justice issues, and the implications of those portrayals for communicating strategically. Many of the projects she works on center on narratives about preventing and addressing violence, including domestic and sexual violence, police violence, child abuse, and gun violence. Pamela’s research has informed communication strategy for the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (on whose Board of Directors she sits), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, among others. She has been published in the American Journal of Public Health, Critical Public Health, and the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse. She holds a bachelor’s degree in human nutrition from Washington State University, as well as master’s degrees in biochemistry and public health from the University of California at Berkeley.
