Description: 

Join the many advocates, activists, survivors and allies working to end domestic violence for this critical conference aimed at challenging and informing those working within the movement and/or "system" to provide the most effective solutions and support to domestic violence victims. At each NCADV conference, we work to connect and empower victims and survivors of domestic (and other forms of) violence through specialized workshops and discussion sessions, strategy sessions, survivor institutes, caucus meetings, our Survivor Speak-out, and other organized events aimed at providing a space for victims and survivors to process their experiences, connect with others and heal. Our conference themes, workshops, presenters and events are structured to provide victim service providers and allied professionals with the information they most need to guide, challenge and improve their work.

Description: 

Stalking is a dangerous crime that affects 3.4 million adults in the United States each year.  The better we understand the facts about stalking, the more we can do to stop it.

That’s why the Stalking Resource Center, National Center for Victims of Crime, and the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, launched National Stalking Awareness Month in 2004. Every January since then, communities across the country have focused on stalking – holding events, sharing information, and building awareness about the crime.

Description: 

The US Department of State estimates that 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked through international borders each year, which does not include countless numbers trafficked domestically within their own countries.  Human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the 21st century - a nine billion dollar industry.  The United States is one of the top three destination points for trafficked victims, the majority of which are women and children.

While domestic violence and human trafficking are different forms of victimization, many similarities and points of intersection exist.  Traffickers prey on those who suffer most from social factors like gender discrimination, violence and abuse.  This workship will provide an overview of human trafficking in the United States and in colorado and offer concrete tools and resources for effective response.
