The National Women's Martial Arts Federation (NWMAF) Self-Defense Instructors Conference (SDIC) will begin on Wednesday, July 20th and, new this year, will continue through the end of Special Training (ST) Sunday, July 24th.

SDIC is looking to create an exciting program with a balance of physical, interactive, and lecture format sessions. The goals include having a conference, which reflects the values implicit in the feminist/social justice empowerment model of self-defense. These values include the core competencies that focus on understanding the culture of violence and gender-based violence, interconnections of racism, classism, and sexism, LGBTQ inclusion and inclusion of a range of physical abilities and ages.

The Department of Criminal Justice Services, in collaboration with the International Association of College Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) and the Virginia Association of College Law Enforcement Administrators (VACLEA), is hosting a National Forum on Campus Sexual Assault. This Forum is designed to bring together experts in the field of campus sexual assault to discuss the latest research, policies, legal challenges, interdisciplinary cooperation, and reporting issues.

Facilitated question and answer sessions will allow for participant interaction with panels of subject matter experts.

Attendees will have significant opportunities to share expertise and resources with colleagues from across the country. Suggested participants include: campus police and security personnel, municipal law enforcement with a connection to institutions of higher education, student life professionals, counseling and women’s center professionals, prosecutors, mental health professionals and other interested campus or community personnel.
