Share your “ROAR” with us at the Biennial Florida Council Against Sexual Violence Training Summit. Join the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence for a three-day, movement-building and networking event focused on sexual violence advocacy, prevention and services. For decades, you and advocates like you in the anti-sexual violence movement have fought to have communities acknowledge the impact of sexual violence and help survivors share their stories. What was once a whispered-about topic is now being revealed, and the nation is taking notice with the roar from advocates, communities and survivors.

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.
