WCSAP 2014 Annual Conference

Type: 
in-person
Date: 
May 28, 2014 - 8:00am to May 30, 2014 - 12:30pm
Description: 

The goals of our conference are to unite agencies and individuals working to end sexual violence, to provide educational opportunities to deepen our understanding of sexual violence, and to facilitate social change.

The theme of this year’s conference is Celebrating Resilience.

As advocates and preventionists working to end sexual violence, we have needed to be resilient.  While this need has made us stronger, it does not always feel like a gift.  This year we want to acknowledge the value of resilience within ourselves, to celebrate this amazing ability, and to cultivate a community of care.  It is the resilience in our lives, our communities, and our movement that inspires each of us to work for what seems impossible at times: the end of oppression and violence. This conference is a chance to connect to our co-workers, allies, and supporters, and to renew our energy, focus, and creativity.  There is more work to do and we need to recharge in order to take on this challenge.

Our Annual Conference webpage will have continual updates so stay tuned for more information!
