This training will provide law enforcement, prosecutors and advocates the opportunity to connect with peers from around the country to examine and discuss the impact of gender bias on the criminal justice system's response to domestic and sexual violence. Framed by the recent Department of Justice guidance, "Identifying and Preventing Gender Bias in Law Enforcement Response to Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence," participants will have the opportunity to identify how gender bias is at work in their own systems and learn ways to address it.
Raliance has a bold vision for a future without sexual violence. To help us build collective power and voice to achieve this, we are convening ThisGEN: Youth Summit from March 6th-10th 2017 in Washington DC. This 5-day event will engage sophomore and junior High School students in leadership and learning opportunities through three tracks.

Building on the success of our first three well-attended conferences held in 2005, 2010, and 2015, Pathways to Resilience IV will provide a forum to explore the unique and shared aspects of individual and community resilience found in the Global South. We expect those attending from the Global South and the Global North to experience a special event that will discuss what resilience looks like in contexts that are less well-known. Our goal is to raise the profile of research, interventions and social policies that are effective across diverse cultures and that show promise of building people’s capacity to cope when adversity is high. This conference varies the tradition of the previous three Pathways conferences in Canada (see www.resilienceresearch.org) by relocating the event to Cape Town, South Africa. We've invited not only world-class scholars but also researchers and practitioners who are not well-represented in the resilience literature and whose exciting work is less visible outside their own communities.
This unique 3-day training summit focuses on the intersection of technology and domestic & sexual violence, stalking, and trafficking. Covering a wide range of technology-related issues, this conference will be helpful to advocates, law enforcement, and legal professionals who work with survivors of abuse.
