NCCASA’s 2015 Conference, Sexual Violence at the Intersections, will focus on the importance of converging social justice movements, as we work collectively toward equity for all people and a society free of sexual assault and other forms of violence. We will also highlight issues of sexual violence including, but not limited to, campus work (Title IX & Clery Act), military sexual assault, human trafficking, and the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA). We are looking for workshops that address primary prevention, service delivery & intervention, enhancing agency capacity, outreach, community organizing, and program management & development.
The goal is to continue building and strengthening the evidence base for domestic and sexual violence programs. Other key goals include: (a) increasing knowledge sharing between service providers and researchers, (b) informing participants about the latest research and practice happening in the state, and (c) providing a forum for researchers and service providers to engage with each other. This conference is co-sponsored by the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault, the UNCG Program to Advance Community Responses to Violence Against Women, and the UNCG Department of Counseling and Educational Development.
THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 2013, Henderson County residents and professionals are invited to attend the first annual CELEBRATION OF COURAGE luncheon where you will be introduced to our featured speaker, Ms. Olga Trujillo, abuse survivor, attorney and author of The Sum of My Parts, copies of which are available at the main library and for sale on Amazon.com.
