Over at the FHO site, I've posted some information on a forensic compliance self-assessment from EVAW.

For those of you looking at spending some budget funds on live events, March and April are traditionally packed with good stuff, and this year's no exception, no matter what region you're in:

Dear Engaged Bystander, I think that one of the biggest mistakes human service/advocacy programs make is in believing that if you give someone enough information, it will change their behaviors. I have a lot of great information about exercise and eating right, yet I sit at my computer for hours with chocolate at my side…
