Senior Prevention Educator and Our Music My Body Campaign Coordinator
As the Senior Prevention Educator with Resilience, Maggie Arthur facilitates education and professional training to all age groups on sexual violence prevention. In her role, she supervises Resilience Education and Training interns and mentors new staff educators in developing their voice in prevention education. She also oversees the accessibility of Resilience prevention education curriculum for youth, by ensuring it is data and evidence informed, age appropriate and in compliance with state and federal sexual health guidelines. Maggie works to build community partnerships with groups who share Resilience’s mission of improving the treatment of survivors and effecting positive change in policies and public attitudes towards sexual violence.
When she is not teaching, Maggie is the Campaign Coordinator of the Our Music My Body (OMMB) campaign. First developed in partnership with Between Friends, OMMB focuses on ending sexual violence in the music community in an effort to create safer spaces for young people and adults. Maggie has had the pleasure of educating the staff of several Chicago music venues, festivals, bars and restaurants on crafting a culture of consent that prioritizes bystander intervention to end harm.
Prior to joining Resilience, Maggie spent nearly a decade volunteering in support of survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence. She holds a BFA in photography and a BA in journalism from Indiana University as well as a Master of Social Work from UIC’s Jane Addams College of Social Work. Maggie is both a 40-hour certified Domestic Violence Survivor Advocate and a 60-hour certified Sexual Assault Survivor Advocate.
