Announcing the Summit Series on Youth & Violence
Save the dates!
Please join Futures Without Violence, Break the Cycle, and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) for a dynamic series of one-day summits exploring effective and innovative responses and strategies for working with young people impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sex trafficking. Service providers, educators, prevention advocates, and all adults who work with youth are invited to attend one (or all!) of these summits, to join in conversation, learning, and discovery with experts and innovative thinkers from across the country.
Summit #1: Innovative Justice - REGISTRATION OPEN!
May 17, 2019
How can systems of justice and accountability foster positive relationships between young people and law enforcement? How can schools build comprehensive policies to respond to gender-based violence that both promote accountability and safety? The Summit on Innovative Justice will explore the complex intersection of accountability, safety, and justice, as it relates to providing prevention, intervention, and response strategies for addressing gender-based violence with youth.

Summit #2: The Impacts of Trauma
July 19, 2019
What does it mean to be trauma informed in a classroom? In a doctor’s office? In a community-based program? How can we most effectively work with young survivors of different types of intersecting violence: sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sex trafficking? This summit will explore the effects of trauma on young people impacted by violence, and will support participants in building critical knowledge and skills to support and effectively work with trauma-affected youth.
Summit #3: Accessibility
August 23, 2019
San Francisco, California
In working with young people impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sex trafficking, it is critical to meet youth where they are, and to ensure that services and programming are accessible and engaging to them. From language access to youth culture to technology, this summit will explore innovative strategies and new models of prevention programming and victim services that are accessible to young people.

We hope to see you there!
