ABOUT MEG

Meg Bossong is the Director of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response at Williams College. At Williams, Meg is responsible for all aspects of student-facing sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking prevention, response, and advocacy programs. This includes the development and implementation of education and prevention strategies, coordination of student affairs support resources and training, advising of student groups, and finding connection across areas of work. The most exciting thing she's thinking about right now is transformative justice as prevention. Prior to this role, Meg worked for over 6 years for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, most recently in the role of Manager of Community Engagement. With BARCC, she managed the community-facing education and outreach work of Massachusetts’ oldest and largest rape crisis center, serving 26 cities and towns and 1.3 million people in the Greater Boston area. Her work has included collaboration with a variety of community partners in education, health care, faith communities, law enforcement, and government to coordinate sexual violence prevention and intervention initiatives.  As a consultant, Meg worked with colleges, universities, and educational programs to design sexual violence response and prevention policies and programming initiatives and to train campus stakeholders on issues related to sexual violence. Meg’s conference, convening, and knowledge-sharing work has been both national and local, as is our work. Nights and weekends, Meg's community organizing focuses on racial justice work, especially its intersections with prison abolition and reimagining community safety as residing with citizens and not police. Meg's education has come partly from institutions, but more fully from the history of our movements, books and podcasts, storytelling, being in community with people, and in the words of Amita Swadhin, "people who trusted me with wisdom that goes beyond on my own experience", for which she is deeply grateful. She is a founding member of CAPPA.
