"Sowing Seeds of Academic Change ~ Nurturing New Paradigms”
A growing body of research is beginning to yield important new insights into the physiological mechanisms that connect exposure to abuse and adverse health consequences. This research, and its implications for considering abuse as an important health issue, have yet to be incorporated into the core health care education curricula. In part, this conference is designed to accelerate the adoption of teaching about violence and abuse by highlighting new research and its implications.
The conference audience will be multi-disciplinary and include physicians, nurses, dentists, social workers, psychologists, physical therapists, public health, academic faculty and advocates who work in health care settings. AVA seeks to attract scientific researchers in this growing field and to engage them in discussion with their peers.
The Women of Color Network (WOCN) is hosting the 2012 National Call to Action Institute and Conference on July 9-13, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota. This more centralized location will increase accessibility to the Midwest and Western Regions.
This National Institute and Conference is the result of over 25 national Call to Action Calls that began in April 2007 with over 700 women of color, male and mainstream advocates across the country to raise awareness regarding the workplace challenges that women of color advocates and activists face in their violence against women programs and the lack of women of color leadership within the anti-violence against women movement as a whole.
Our theme is "Collective Empowerment, Collective Liberation", with the purpose of:
Uniting women of color across ethnicity, race, age,citizenship, sexual orientation, disability, body type, faith, discipline, and locality for collective survival.
Encouraging Aspiring Allies to support women of color leadership and aim for collective liberation in challenging racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, agesim, and other forms of oppression and bias.
