Description: 

Like all adult survivors of abuse, older adults have a complex set of circumstances and often poor options to consider.  Latin@ older survivors may face additional barriers requiring service providers to examine how they are currently delivering services and how their policies and practices may help or hinder an older survivor.  During this webinar, presenters will share their experiences and lessons learned as they observed World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Presenters will share available resources for the field to help address elder abuse and promote elder justice.  Additionally, they will provide tools developed specifically for Latin@ survivors and their families. Finally, presenters will discuss how the complexity of these situations often requires organizations and communities to work together in new and innovative ways to meet the needs of older survivors.

Description: 

In rural communities many barriers exist for sexual violence survivors who have physical or cognitive disabilities. A lack of nearby services and resources, confidentiality and privacy challenges, and inadequate transportation systems all contribute to the obstacles these survivors may face in seeking supportive and healing services. Join Shirley Paceley from Blue Tower Training and Leah Green as they discuss how rural advocacy programs can best support sexual violence survivors with disabilities.

Description: 

Our movement was undeniably founded on the strength and courage of survivors. As we have moved towards professionalization in recent decades, and considering our hiring practices, have we truly made a space for survivors to join us as staff and volunteers? Rural rape crisis centers, with the smallest number of community members to pull from, will be the focus of this workshop as we explore ways to broaden our strategies to be more inclusive and survivor friendly. Join Michelle Dixon-Wall from WCSAP and Leah Green for this exciting webinar.
