Guide on How to Identify Speakers, Trainers and Experts


The National Sexual Violence Resource Center maintains an extensive database of experts in the sexual violence and related fields. This tool is used to help connect communities and individuals with experts to assist with research, training, testifying, technical assistance and public speaking. Although the NSVRC does not endorse particular experts, we do collect references.
