Day 1 will cover core concepts about who transgender and non-binary people are, prevalence rates and key data about victimization, federal protections and non-discrimination laws. Building on this, day 2 will be geared more towards advocates, therapists, other staff working at sexual assault or domestic violence-focused agencies. Participants will gain trans-specific knowledge and skills about safety planning/harm reduction.
VAWnet Event Calendar
This event is a workshop at the first annual statewide conference focusing on campus sexual assault prevention and response, hosted by the ICESA Campus Consortium
This very practical workshop will: 1) Discuss federal laws and regulations that improve trans and non-binary survivors’ access to services; 2) Review training and technical assistance materials for service providers; and 3) Explore new trans-specific resources and tools providers can use with survivors.
This three-day training is designed to enhance the ability of OVW-funded technical assistance providers to create in-person events (conferences, trainings, and roundtables) that are accessible and welcoming to people with disabilities and Deaf people.
Welcome to the 5th National Safe and Together Symposium. After an extremely successful 2016 event, we are excited to announce that this year’s symposium will focus on adult survivors' capacities as parents, voices of children, working with men as parents, and advancing domestic violence-informed practice in Texas.
Enhancing Organizational Capacity for Our Communities is a 2 day training that will bring together about 30 participants who are interested in strengthening their capacity to effectively manage, operate and sustain their organizations. The goal of this training is to increase the organizational capacity of OVW grantees and their partners serving culturally specific, rural, tribal, and underserved communities.
