Reclaiming Hope: A Statewide Conference to End Sexual and Domestic Violence

Covid impacted our community in many ways.  Domestic violence incidents increased—there were more stressors, social isolation, and limited resources during and after the pandemic. In addition, our community saw a huge turnover in mental health professionals, advocates working directly with survivors and their children, teachers and first responders. These trends continue today.

The goal of Reclaiming Hope: A Statewide Conference to End Domestic and Sexual Violence on June 27 and June 28, 2024 is to build capacity in our community to respond to individuals, children and families impacted by violence. This conference will be a call to action for everyone who attends about what we can do together to prevent, respond, and support those impacted by violence to begin healing — In Unity, Hope Blossoms. 

This conference brings together IPV advocates, mental health professionals, social workers, medical professionals, educators, counselors, first responders, attorneys, survivors, and anyone working with individuals impacted by violence.

At the conclusion of the conference, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the impact of violence on individuals, children, families and community health and well-being.
  2. Discuss promising- and evidence-based prevention, intervention, and responses to violence.
  3. Identify strategies to understand resources and  support systems to respond to those impacted by violence in their homes, relationships, and community.
  4. Cultivate a resilient and sustainable self-care practice that leaves participants feeling inspired, connected, challenged, renewed, and activated.
