Description: 

The Institute is a 2 ½ day course and is open to team coordinators (leaders) and state and territorial level leaders that coordinate or support local teams responding to sexual violence.The Institute’s primary objective is to build the capacity of team leaders to design and facilitate effective team processes. The team leader plays a key role in a team’s overall development. It is complex, challenging and rewarding work. The social and system improvement teams work towards requires more than knowledge of best practices — it also requires the ability to influence multiple systems and agencies in order to apply that knowledge. The Institute will focus on the skills needed to lead multidisciplinary teams to design, implement, and evaluate their community’sresponse to sexual violence.

Description: 

The Twin Cities is among the nation's 13 largest centers for sex trafficking of children.  In a concerted effort to combat this disturbing trend, business and nonprofit leaders, law enforcement, prosecutors, advocates, and private funders are working to design a field-leading intervention model to eliminate the sex trafficking of Minnesota girls.  Cutting-edge programs - like the women's Foundation of Minnesota's MN Girls Are Not For Sale campaign and Carlson's training protocol to help Radisson Hotel employees spot and report trafficking activities - are leading the way in this fight.

The Women of Color Network (WOCN) is hosting the 2012 National Call to Action Institute and Conference on July 9-13, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota. This more centralized location will increase accessibility to the Midwest and Western Regions.

This National Institute and Conference is the result of over 25 national Call to Action Calls that began in April 2007 with over 700 women of color, male and mainstream advocates across the country to raise awareness regarding the workplace challenges that women of color advocates and activists face in their violence against women programs and the lack of women of color leadership within the anti-violence against women movement as a whole.

Our theme is "Collective Empowerment, Collective Liberation", with the purpose of:

  • Uniting women of color across ethnicity, race, age,citizenship, sexual orientation, disability, body type, faith, discipline, and locality for collective survival.
  • Encouraging Aspiring Allies to support women of color leadership and aim for collective liberation in challenging racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, agesim, and other forms of oppression and bias.
