Shefali Prakash

Regional Director and LPA

 

Shefali is a Southwest Regional Director and a Lead Peer Advocate. She joined BLOOM365 because domestic violence, sexual violence, and other forms of interpersonal violence are prevalent issues that can no longer be trivialized and normalized in our society. She knows that the work we do at BLOOM365 is important because a life free from violence is a basic human right, not a luxury. Shefali is passionate about the work we do because it revolves around the youth/teens, which are the future of tomorrow. In her spare time, Shefali loves to go on runs, do yoga, and cook!

Testimonials:

“I chose to be a Lead Peer Advocate in order to activate and amplify the voices of my peers to create a future that supports healthy masculinity, free of sexual violence.”

“Having the opportunity to educate my friends through the 7-Doses has helped me form deeper connections with my peers and made me more aware of the hidden issues plaguing teens.”

“BLOOM365’s 7-Dose Education curriculum makes us aware of the warning signs of interpersonal violence and also activates teens to prevent the root causes, peer to peer.” -Saanvi, LPA Regional Director

“As a Lead Peer Advocate, I am now more aware of my surroundings, red flags to look for and how to help in a situation.” -Alex K, LPA

When just 10% of teens activate

to uproot abuse peers will notice, without saying a word.

 

Once this 10% Tipping Point is reached, the intolerance often dating abuse, sexual, violence, gender-based violence and domestic violence starts to become visible.

Testimonials:

"I choose to be a Lead Peer Advocate in order to activate and amplify the voices of my peers to create a future that supports healthy masculinity, free of sexual violence." - Avi, Glendale, AZ

 

“Advocacy has changed the way I see people. It’s so easy to fall into the thinking that no one really cares about who is getting hurt anymore, but I no longer see it that way. There are people who care. It is that simple fact that keeps my hope of a better world alive and keeps me pushing for Change.” -Faith, Queen Creek, AZ

 

First Friday Campaigns

When 10% of a community promotes the First Friday campaign it’s enough for others to notice. This simply sparks a conversation, models healthy behaviors, promotes “upstander” actions and validates victims and survivors without saying a word. The goal is to create protective environments by showing support for survivors and promote positive social norms of empathy, respect, consent, quality, safety, etc.

 

Join us during our First Friday campaigns and activate your school community and encourage students to join you by wearing the corresponding color and hosting events on campus!

Elephant in the Room Campus Conversations

The Elephant in the Room Study Circles bring a group of your peers and members of the campus community together to talk about ways communities can develop and implement action agendas to prevent and respond to sexual violence.

 

Led by a Lead Peer Advocate facilitator who is trained to manage discussion, participants come together each quarter for a two hour “study circle” session to examine issues related to sexual violence prevention from diverse points of view, explore possible solutions and develop ideas for action and change.

What does a session look like?

  • We frame the issue and talk about how participants are connected to the issue 

  • We examine a root cause and existing sexual violence responses in the community to prevent it

  • We explore how teens and trusted adult allies can work together to improve things

  • We then move from dialogue to action to change!

 

Session Topics Can Include:

  • Jealousy

  • Removing Barriers to Help

  • Redefining Masculinity

  • Inclusivity (LGBTQ+)

  • Active Bystander/Upstanders
