The theme of this year’s conference is “Hand in Hand Through a Lifetime.” This theme acknowledges the various points in people’s lives during which they may be affected by sexual violence. We also wish to highlight the importance of creating a caring and connected community in order to prevent and intervene in sexual violence, especially for children. This year’s keynote speaker will be Olga Trujillo. She will address the dynamics and impacts of sexual assault with a focus on the resiliency of children and the importance of culture in healing. The goal of our conference is to unite agencies and individuals working to end sexual violence, provide educational opportunities to deepen our understanding of sexual violence, and facilitate social change.
