People who have experienced violence consistently report how essential advocacy is to them and their efforts to live violence free lives.
This training was developed for sexual and domestic violence advocates that are interested in exploring past, present and future forms of advocacy. During this training we will discuss past movements and how they have shaped how we practice advocacy today. We will also give participants the opportunity to discuss their own journey to advocacy and how it has shaped their practice. If you are looking to expand your capacity for advocacy, this training is for you.
Registration will close 3 days prior to this training to ensure that there is an opportunity for participants to receive and review pre-training materials.
Who should attend? Advocates in local domestic violence and/or sexual violence programs and advocates in victim/witness programs who previously attended a Basic Intensive Advocacy Training (BIAT) in 2017 or 2018.
Each training will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m., with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. Training will end by 4:00 p.m.
Cost for the training is: $25.00, which includes training materials. Lunch will be provided on both days.
Dress is casual but remember that the temperature varies in training rooms so dressing in layers is the best option.
