Most of our conference workshops are aligned with one or more of the tracks listed below.

Prevention Through Liberation (PTL)

The Prevention Through Liberation project supports community-driven culturally-specific and –responsive activities that address sexual violence at its deepest roots.

We Choose All of Us (WE)

Workshops in this track will educate and empower attendees to champion changes toward equity and inclusion within their organizations, through their work, and in their wider communities. 

Support group facilitation (SG)

Workshops in this track will detail successful strategies for planning, developing, and facilitating support groups for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and/or stalking. 

Trauma-informed supervision and leadership (TISL)

Workshops in this track will focus on agency-level policies and supervisory practices that effectively focus on trauma resilience, stewardship, and organizational sustainability.
