ABOUT THE TRAINING
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are victims of sexual abuse by the age of 18. Join us for a day-long training targeting community & faith leaders, educators, social services providers and other interested individuals to gain an in-depth understanding of the issue and what we can do to work toward prevention. The goals of this training are the following:
featuring local and national experts representing organizations such as HEART Women & Girls, Rahma Network, Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Arab American Family Services, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), and many more. Reserve your tickets today!
- To raise awareness about the prevalence of sexual violence in faith-communities.
- To learn from other faith communities to create strategic, sustainable, and victim-centric approaches that address and prevent sexual violence.
- To increase the number of sexual assault survivor advocates in faith communities, with a particular focus on Muslim communities.
