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.

Did you know that sex trafficking, forced prostitution and other gender-based violence against women in other countries is becoming one of the paramount human rights issues of this century? Are you aware of the many ways that you can inspire positive change and help women worldwide to lead free and fulfilling lives?

The book, "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide," by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, offers concrete examples of how social action - one person at a time - can make a difference. Their work combines searing individual testimonials with detailed documentation on injustices to women, and offers many strategies to overcome these abuses and create positive change.

Amy Robinson, past chair of the Stowe Center Board of Trustees and Stowe Prize Selection Committee member, will facilitate the discussion of Half the Sky at the next Nook Farm Book Talk on Thursday, April 7, from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Stowe Center in Hartford.

In recognition of the positive impact that Kristof and WuDunn's work is having to inspire hope and opportunity for women, they are the recipients of the inaugural Stowe Prize named in honor of Harriet Beecher Stowe. Her novel, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," galvanized the anti-slavery movement and contributed to the outbreak of the Civil War.

The $10,000 Stowe Prize honors contemporary writing that inspires change and will be awarded on June 9 at the Stowe Prize Big Tent Jubilee, as part of the bicentennial commemoration of Stowe's 200th birthday.

In The New York Times, Carolyn See described "Half the Sky" as "a call to arms, a call for help, a call for contributions, but also a call for volunteers. It asks us to open our eyes to this enormous humanitarian issue. It does so with exquisitely crafted prose and sensationally interesting material."

Conference Goals

To help stop future occurrences of ritual abuse, to help survivors of ritual abuse, to name the groups that have participated in alleged illegal activities, to unite those working to stop ritual abuse

Conference Participants


The conference will include all those either recovering from ritual abuse and/or fighting against ritual abuse. This includes survivors, co-survivors, therapists, other helping professionals, lawyers and all others interested in learning more about ritual abuse.

Current members of secret organizations, current perpetrators, and/or members of unsympathetic organizations are excluded from the conference. This is for the protection and safety of those in attendance.

People have told us that last year’s conference was the safest conference they have ever been to. But, this conference may not necessarily be safe for all survivors. S.M.A.R.T. recommends that you try to bring a support person that is familiar with mind control techniques and staying with that person or another safe person at all times. We also recommend reading http://ritualabuse.us/smart-conference/conf1999/trigger-management-and-conference-safety-presentation/ about conference safety and trigger management.

Conference Information

The conference will be one evening and two full days. Lunch will be free for all registrees both days for those registered before 8/11/09. Room rates are $97 a day (not incl. tax), please mention S.M.A.R.T. to get the special rate. This rate is guaranteed until 7/14/09 or until all rooms at the special rate are gone. Please contact the hotel at 860-627-5171 for information.
