Description: 

MVP is a gender violence prevention program which uses the unique Bystander Approach to motivate both men and women to play a central role in solving problems that have historically been considered “women’s issues”: rape, battery, and sexual harassment. The MVP program views all individuals not as potential perpetrators or victims, but as empowered bystanders who can recognize and confront abuse.MVP Institutes are three-day interactive trainings designed for adults and adult educators. The Institute consists of two phases: during the first phase individuals go through the training as participants. During the second phase participants practice facilitating the MVP curriculum and create MVP implementation plans. Upon completion of the Institute, participants receive a digital copy of the MVP curriculum and are certified to utilize it with their direct service population.Male and female adult educators and youth service providers are encouraged to attend. The Institute is also open to other adults who are interested in exploring the topic of men’s violence against women. Participants are eligible to receive 21 PDP’s from the Massachusetts Department of Education.

Description: 

Stalking affects 6.6 million people in the United States each year and stalking victims recount the fear and distress they have experienced as a result of this crime in courtrooms throughout the country everyday. Far too often, these victims’ reports are taken seriously only after the stalkers escalate their behaviors and cause significant property damage, physical harm, or death to their victims. Stalkers create and exploit vulnerabilities in their victims while relying on technology and their ability to manipulate the justice system in order to conceal their crimes and cast doubt on their victim’s credibility. This conference will address the challenges stalking crimes present, the use of technology to commit and conceal the crime and innovative strategies for investigating and prosecuting stalkers and promoting victim safety.AEquitas is partnering with the Stalking Resource Center and the Battered Women’s Justice Project to host a national conference that will include topical and skill building sessions designed to enhance the ability of participants to prosecute intimate partner stalking cases.
