You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I rise
Capturing the inspiration of the Maya Angelou poem Still I Rise, the three-day retreat will feature opportunities to bear witness to triumph over adversity. For over 16 years the Annual Spring Retreat has been a haven for advocates to come together, rejuvenate, support one another and train each other in the field of working to end violence against women. Early registration Fee: $250 member; $280 non-member (Register by May 7th!) Registration Fee: $300 member; $330 non-member Registration includes: training, meals and lodging.

The Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance is excited to sponsor a 3-day conference addressing the primary prevention of sexual and intimate partner violence (SV/IPV). This conference will showcase innovative primary prevention projects from across North America, as well as highlight Virginia-based prevention initiatives. Our national speakers will showcase programs and concepts consistent with promising practices in the primary prevention of SV/IPV. In practice, the primary prevention of SV/IPV means promoting the factors associated with healthy relationships and healthy sexuality, and counteracting the factors associated with first-time perpetration.
