Description: 

The Colorado Advocacy in Action Conference is co-hosted annually by the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA). The Coalitions collaborate on this event in order to provide training and education that is based on best and promising practices for addressing sexual and domestic violence, and to ensure that services for survivors are as consistent and comprehensive as possible. Colorado Advocacy in Action is the only statewide conference specific to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence advocacy and is intended for victim service providers as well as affiliated professionals. We hope it also provides an opportunity for advocates in the sexual and domestic violence field to connect with their counterparts and build a collective voice to further our work to end sexual and domestic violence in Colorado.

Keynote Presentation - Moving into the Light: Surviving in the Anti-Immigrant Age by Mónica Ramírez

Millions of immigrants have lived in our nation’s shadows due to our country’s broken immigration system.  Among them, scores of undocumented women have been forced to suffer in silence out of fear of retaliation against them by their exploitative employers, abusive partners or law enforcement if and/when they dared to speak out.  Ms. Ramírez will provide perspective into the fears, strengths, challenges and successes that she witnessed as she accompanied her clients on their journey out of the shadows.  She will share lessons learned and advocacy tools that helped her navigate the rocky, turbulent and, often, murky waters of the civil immigration, civil litigation and criminal process.

About Mónica Ramírez

Mónica Ramírez is an activist, attorney, author, teacher, and speaker.   Daughter and granddaughter of migrant farmworkers, Ramírez has been a farmworker, anti-sexual violence, women’s and immigrant rights activist for nearly two decades. She is recognized as one of the nation’s leaders in the movement to end workplace sexual violence against farmworker and low-wage immigrant women.

Description: 

The role of intervention in addressing intimate partner violence has become distorted due to a combination of gender neutral advocates, flawed and misrepresented research and the increasing emphasis on evidence based practice. The result is that legislators and communities are withdrawing support from intervention program and the resurgence of strategies that put victims at risk are being promoted. Programs are increasingly finding themselves under attack and having to respond to questions that that they are not prepared to answer. Batterer Intervention Services Coalition of Michigan (BISC-MI) has taken the lead in the last 20 years of bringing together some of the best faculty from around the world to address controversial issues and provide unequaled networking opportunities. This year is no exception. This conference is an unprecedented opportunity to hear and mingle with some of the leading experts from around the world. A variety of thought provoking plenary sessions will address topics of research, culture, women's use of force and how the field can move forward. Additionally, there will be an assortment of workshops which will offer a smaller group experience to explore topics in depth. This conference is bringing together many of the leaders in the field to discuss how to reclaim the narrative and define the future of batterer intervention programming with an emphasis on cultural sensitivity and victim safety focus.
