Description: 

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.

Description: 

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.

Description: 

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.

Ally Week, taking place this year on September 28 – October 2, 2015, is a national dialogue about how everyone -- in and out of school -- can work to become better allies to LGBT youth.We know that allyship is about more than broadly supporting LGBT people; it's an active, ongoing process of advocating for LGBT youth (and other marginalized groups) without speaking for them or over them. During Ally Week, we challenge one another to think critically about what allyship means, how we are allies to others, and what kind of allies we seek out for ourselves.Supported by over 20 endorsers, Ally Week is an opportunity for us to recognize what true allyship looks like for each of us. How should you get started?FIRST, register for Ally Week here! It helps us learn who's participating in Ally Week and gives us a way to get in touch with you in the future.THEN, read up on what actions you can take as an ally right now.
