Stronger together: Collaborations for social change

In order to end domestic and sexual violence we need to dismantle the systems of oppression and inequity that perpetuate and allow gender-based violence to thrive. We need to come together across the state, and across generations, to share ideas, support one another, and work toward a mutual worldview free of domestic and sexual violence. As the statewide coalition to end domestic and sexual violence, we are excited for the opportunity to bring together advocates, community organizations, and survivors at our annual conference. It is critical that we form connections and work collaboratively in our efforts to prevent gender-based violence.

This track will focus on anti-oppression work and involve workshops that aim to teach domestic and sexual violence advocates about intersectional work and how varying marginalized identities will impact how different groups of people are affected by domestic and sexual violence.

Beginner’s Advocacy

This track will involve workshops that cater to advocates that are new to the movement, and will help them to build their skill-set and learn domestic and sexual violence basics.


This track is geared towards educators whose work focuses on building a violence-free world, and could include folks that collaborate with youth, communities, or with other agencies to achieve this goal.

Building Partnerships

This track will incorporate our overall conference theme, and discuss how to work collaboratively within our movements and organizations towards a violence-free future.

Self Care

This track will focus on the vital self-care that is needed for advocates and others doing anti-violence work in order to prevent burnout and fill our own cups so that we can continue the work of giving to others.
