The purpose of this training program is to train local civilian victim advocates on building effective partnerships with local military installations to enhance and extend the system of support for sexual assault victims in the military. With the knowledge gained through this training process and their own expertise in sexual assault, local civilian victim advocates will be able to serve as knowledgeable resources to military installations.To prepare for the 2014 series of training events, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) through its Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) and in collaboration with the Department of Defense (DoD) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office (SAPRO), have updated the training curriculum to reflect FY2013 DoD data and new victim assistance related programs and policies.

WMC Progressive Women’s Voices is the premier media and message training program for women in the country.  There are not enough progressive women’s voices in mainstream media and this program aims to change that.  We are looking for women with diverse expertise (economic justice, health care policy, LGBTQ rights, etc.) who have the ability to make their voices heard in the media.  We seek thought leaders, issue experts, and advocates for change who want to gain knowledge and skills to leverage their messages both locally and nationally.  Participants represent a range of expertise and diversity across race, class, geography, sexual preference, ability, and generation. They receive advanced, comprehensive training and tools to position themselves as media spokespeople in their fields, thereby changing the conversation on issues that fill headlines. Graduates join a supportive network of alumnae who support each other in their media goals.

Description: 

The Statewide Training on Violence Against Women Program (VAWT) was created by the Sexual Assault Family Violence Investigators Course (SAFVIC) in 2010 to create a statewide conference for law enforcement and telecommunication personnel. The purpose of the VAWT program is to assist in developing and strengthening effective law enforcement and prosecution strategies to combat violent crimes against women and to develop and strengthen victim services in such cases. The program was initially funded in 2010 through the American Recovery andReinvestment Act of 2009, S.T.O.P Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Program Grant from the Criminal Justice Division (CJD) of the Texas Governor’s Office.

The Statewide Training on Violence Against Women Program (VAWT) held its first successful conference in February 2011.  With subsequent funding from the Criminal Justice Division of the Texas Governor’s Office and the S.T.O.P ViolenceAgainst Women Act (VAWA) Program Grant, the program coordinated additional successful conferences in San Antonio in July 2012 and in Irving in 2013.
