Three leading sexual violence prevention organizations announce the creation of “Raliance,” a collaborative initiative dedicated to ending sexual violence in one generation. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the PreventConnect/California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence have joined together to compose the new entity. This significant moment in the prevention movement is being made possible through a multiyear, $10 million commitment from the National Football League – the first-ever major corporate funding of sexual violence prevention initiatives.
An 90 minute informational web conference will be held on Tuesday, July 12 at 10:30am Pacific (11:30am Mountain, 12:30pm Central, and 1:30pm Eastern). The intent of this webinar is to provide the audience with an overview of the grant program to include information about the partnership, eligibility, timeline, new grant management software, funding categories, funding amount available, and eligible and ineligible expenses. This event will be recorded and posted for those not able to attend.

Dallas Children's Advocacy Center & Dallas Police Department
Internationally recognized, the Crimes Against Children Conference is the premier conference of its kind providing practical and interactive instruction to those fighting crimes against children and helping children heal.
In rural communities many barriers exist for sexual violence survivors who have physical or cognitive disabilities. A lack of nearby services and resources, confidentiality and privacy challenges, and inadequate transportation systems all contribute to the obstacles these survivors may face in seeking supportive and healing services. Join Shirley Paceley from Blue Tower Training and Leah Green as they discuss how rural advocacy programs can best support sexual violence survivors with disabilities.
Our movement was undeniably founded on the strength and courage of survivors. As we have moved towards professionalization in recent decades, and considering our hiring practices, have we truly made a space for survivors to join us as staff and volunteers? Rural rape crisis centers, with the smallest number of community members to pull from, will be the focus of this workshop as we explore ways to broaden our strategies to be more inclusive and survivor friendly. Join Michelle Dixon-Wall from WCSAP and Leah Green for this exciting webinar.
Join Cat Fribley, Director of the Resource Sharing Project, for part two of a two part conversation about sexual health and its impact on sexual violence survivors.

This webinar will identify and explore an advocate's role in support for healing sexuality for survivors, including such topics as pleasure, consent and desire, boundaries, dissociation and embodiment, and trigger plans for working with survivors interested in exploring healing sexuality. This webinar will contain direct and graphic language about sexuality.
Join Kim Day from the International Association of Forensic Nurses for part one of a two part conversation about sexual health and its impact on sexual violence survivors. This webinar will provide education for rural sexual violence advocates on pregnancy options post assault, sexually transmitted infections, Plan B, and HIV medication with an emphasis placed on creating a safe space for advocates to ask questions and learn about sexual health from an expert.
The effects of sexual violence not only impact survivors, but those who care about them as well. Family members, friends, and intimate partners have a profound effect on the healing of survivors, but they need information and support in order to be committed allies for the survivors they love. This webinar will identify the challenges faced by these partners in healing and describe how rural programs can meet their needs in a compassionate and effective manner.
