Description: 

Strengthening Military-Civilian Community Partnerships to Respond to Sexual Assault is an interactive two-day training that will help participants establish partnerships with local military installations in order to effectively respond to the needs of sexual assault victims in the military. Throughout this training, participants will build knowledge about military systems, protocols, and culture to improve service provision to military sexual assault victims and to develop an appreciation of the perspectives of their future collaborative partners. It is through this developing sense of awareness that civilians will begin to understand who the military Service Member is, the culture they need to live and operate in, what motivates him/her, and what the military victim needs when working with community-based advocates. With the knowledge gained through this training process, in combination with their existing expertise in sexual assault, participants will be able to serve as knowledgeable resources to military installations throughout the United States.

Women’s Crisis Support ~ Defensa de Mujeres would like to invite you to participate in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Saturday, April 9th at Lighthouse Point on West Cliff Drive in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ®: The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence is a nationwide event that invites families to participate in a one mile walk, literally in her shoes by wearing women’s high heels, to raise awareness around issues of rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks community members to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.
