Cluster: Culturally-specific and -responsive services

The workshop would be a mix of presenting information about what Safe Harbors has done to reach out to rural LGBTQ folks living in Wallowa County, discussion, and group activities to help attendees creatively think about reaching out to LGBTQ individuals and survivors beyond cultural-competency trainings and rainbow stickers.

Presented by:

Stefanie Duncan
Stefanie Duncan has lived in rural northeastern Oregon for the past 20 years. She has worked as a domestic and sexual violence advocate in both Union and Wallowa counties, wearing many different hats in both of those places. She currently works for Safe Harbors in Enterprise, Oregon as the lead sexual assault advocate, teen advocate, LGBTQ advocate, and DHS Co-located advocate. She is involved with community organizing with the Wallowa County Peace and Justice Network and the newly formed Safe Space Youth Program. When not at one of her 6 kids’ sporting events, Stef enjoys hiking, skiing, and backpacking with her wife in the Wallowa Mountains.

Amy Stubblefield
An Executive Director of one of the most rural DV/SA agencies in Oregon, Amy strives to lead her agency in a social justice framework in which all survivors have access to safety, services, and resources. To achieve this goal, Amy has secured funding for an LGBTQ specific advocate, supports her efforts in establishing a teen LGBTQ Safe Space, and encourages her efforts to educate community partners on the particular needs of this marginalized and under served population. In addition, Amy actively sought and added both staff and a board member from the LGBTQ population.
