Description

The Ending Violence Association of BC is pleased to invite you to our 2018 Annual Training Forum “Beyond #MeToo: Supporting Survivors | Changing Culture” that will bring together anti-violence workers from across BC along with colleagues from justice, policing, health, government and academia.

This year we are also organizing a Pre-Conference Consultation: Sexual Assault Prevention, Education and Response in BC, with the goal of bringing together representatives from a range of programs that have historically been key stakeholders in the provision of prevention, education, response, training, advocacy and policy for sexual assault survivors, to discuss current strengths and gaps and what we collectively would like to see in place going forward.

We hope you will find time in your very busy schedules to attend and connect with anti-violence colleagues and experts in the field. We look forward to seeing you there!

November 14, 2018 10:00am-2:00pm
