SlutWalk Toronto
Description: 

On April 3rd, 2011 the first SlutWalk event took place in Toronto, Canada. Inspired and influenced by powerful anti-violence efforts that came before us, SlutWalk aimed to fight against victim-blaming as a pervasive experience of sexual violence. It began in Toronto, Canada but quickly messages against victim-blaming continued to spread to cities and communities around the world. We all want to see an end to victim-blaming. We have seen amazing international collective action fighting against victim-blaming and fighting for respect and support of all survivors of sexual violence for years. In recognition of these efforts and many other ongoing actions, we marked April 3rd, 2011 as the first International Day Against Victim-Blaming.In one year the International Day Against Victim-Blaming has gained traction and although we wish this day was unnecessary, we’re thankful for all those working to end victim blaming today on the second International Day Against Victim-Blaming, April 3rd, 2013.

Description: 

The Sexual Violence Research Initiative is proud to announce the 3rd international conference on sexual violence research, SVRI Forum 2013. The aim of SVRI Forum 2013 is to promote promising practices for preventing and responding to sexual and intimate partner violence. The Forum 2013 will be co-hosted by Partners for Prevention.The scope of the SVRI Forum will expand in 2013 to include both sexual violence and intimate partner violence. This extension of the scope of the SVRI Forum encourages examination of the overlapping nature of these acts of violence.  The SVRI Forum 2013 will also link the child protection and SGBV fields and promote cross sectoral dialogue and exchange on primary prevention of child abuse and neglect especially when linked to  future prevention of sexual violence perpetration and victimization.The objectives of SVRI Forum 2013 are to:

  • Promote excellence in research on sexual and intimate partner violence
  • Bridge gaps between research, policy and practice
  • Provide opportunity and space for speakers and audience to interact  and learn from high-level presentations and developments in the field
  • Encourage discussion of new ideas for services and prevention responses with the principal elements derived from evidence and expert opinions
  • Encourage networking and sharing of  knowledge across fields and sectors, including across violence against women and violence against children
  • Provide a space where participants feel supported to talk about challenges in undertaking research on sexual and intimate partner violence

Researchers, activists, donors, service providers and policy-makers from across all sectors are therefore invited to submit abstracts, according to the SVRI Forum 2013 themes:

  • Addressing sexual and intimate partner violence in low- and middle-income countries
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • HIV and sexual violence
  • Trafficking for sexual exploitation
  • Sexual and other forms of gender-based violence in conflict and crisis

Within these themes, abstracts which include a life-course perspective; address under-researched areas such as disability and sexual abuse; the role of faith based organisations and other community based institutions in responding to and prevention sexual and gender based violence, as well as abstracts which address men and masculinities; and gender and prevention of sexual violence and IPV are particularly encouraged. Priority will also be given to abstracts that detail responses and prevention programmes that incorporate multi-sectoral and cross sectoral strategies or have findings of interventions and longitudinal studies.We encourage participants to use the SVRI Sexual Violence Research Agenda as guide in developing abstracts. In the coming weeks we will give more details about the venue, call for abstracts, pre-conference workshops, prize-giving and more.

A 90-minute webinar presented by Philip McCabe, Health Educator at UMDNJ and leader of NJ Gay Health Initiative Project.

Sexual violence is any act (verbal and/or physical) which breaks a person’s trust and/or safety and is sexual in nature.Heterosexism and homo/trans phobia in our culture puts LGBTQ people at greater risk for sexual assault. It is common for perpetrators to use sexual violence as a way to punish and humiliate someone for being LGBTQ, and/or for sexual assault to be one type of violence that occurs during an anti-LGBTQ battering. Interpersonal violence can also occur between same sex domestic partners, former partners, other family members, friends, co workers and others known to the victim. Providers can benefit from understanding the difficulty for LGBTQ victims to receive services as well as what considerations can be beneficial for providing LGBTQ affirmative, trauma informed services. 

As a result of this webinar participants will:

*Analyze the prevalence and consequences of sexual violence as it pertains to LGBTQ individuals.

*Describe special considerations in working with victims of same-gender violence and also individuals who identify as LGBTQ and are victims of opposite gender sexual violence.

Participants will use GoToMeeting to join the webinar. After you register, you will receive an email with instructions for participating.

Time: 2:00p-3:30p

Just Detention International
Description: 

This JDI webinar will introduce advocates to exciting new opportunities to help incarcerated youth who have been sexually abused. Children and adolescents in detention suffer sexual abuse and harassment at alarming rates, and the effects of this abuse can last a lifetime. That's the bad news. The good news is that the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards offer guidance for corrections facilities and pave the way for rape crisis counselors and other advocates who care about children to provide life-saving help to this underserved population

During the webinar, experts in the fields of sexual abuse and youth detention will discuss the range of services addressed in the PREA standards. Presenters will review some of the challenges of providing care to this population, and to working in detention settings more broadly. Attendees will learn ways to adapt crisis interventions to these settings, as well as other strategies to offer the community standard of care to youth detainees. This webinar will feature advocates who have worked in youth facilities and survivors who have experienced this abuse.
