Upcoming Trainings

Present at the 2019 Colorado Advocacy in Action conference scheduled for Wednesday, June 5 - Friday, June 7 in Vail, CO. That's not a typo – this year the conference is moving to Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Come for the conference, stay for the weekend. 

The Colorado Advocacy in Action Conference is one of the largest collaborative professional development opportunities for domestic violence and sexual assault training across the country. Last year, more than 325 attendees from as far as Hawaii to Deleware gathered to grow, inspire and connect with other leaders in the movement. 
We are looking for breakout session presenters who are
  • Able to present 90 minute or double-sessions (180 minutes);
  • Share best practices, examples, and resources that attendees can apply in their everyday work;
  • How programs innovatively worked with other kinds of service providers (faith, culturally specific, military, sports leaders, etc.) to meet the needs of traditionally marginalized survivors/communities;
  • Able to present in an interactive, engaging fashion.
Submit your proposal online. Deadline for proposals is Wednesday, November 14, 2018, at 5:00 PM. For more information, visit our presenter FAQ.
