Note about events amid COVID-19: NCEDSV is staying up-to-date on the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and plans to follow public health guidelines for our Regional Trainings in May and our Annual Conference in September. We intend to continue planning these events in-person, hoping that the public health threat will resolve, but we will offer them as virtual events if needed. We will continue posting updates to keep those planning on attending informed. Registration for the Regional Trainings, whether in person or taking place virtually, is still required for the event. NCEDSV provides training and technical assistance (meaning direct, problem-solving services), to Nevada’s domestic violence and sexual violence service programs and providers. These services are tailored to the needs of each individual program, organization, or person requesting help. Members can call or email NCEDSV to receive support in a variety of areas, from best practices to nonprofit management and governance. If you or your organization would benefit from training or technical assistance, please contact us.

NCEDSV’s Annual Conference – Stronger Together: Collaborations for Social Change
*Our Conference will be virtual this year due to COVID-19 precautions*
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.
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.
This track will incorporate our overall conference theme, and discuss how to work collaboratively within our movements and organizations towards a violence-free future.
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.
