The Utah Sexual Violence Conference is a world-class event that brings together hundreds of survivors, community members, and professionals working in the field of sexual violence prevention and response. Whether your goal is to contribute expertise and help drive change in the field of sexual violence, learn from your peers and adopt new practices, or connect with like-minded professionals who are solving everyday challenges, make plans now to present at the Utah Sexual Violence Conference.
The Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, Utah Sexual Violence Council, and Utah System of Higher Education will host the 2018 Utah Sexual Violence Conference from April 4-6, 2018.
Effective sexual violence prevention and response requires the application of a wider lens that recognizes these harms in the context of individual and community settings that include poverty, racism, gender socialization, ableism, lack of health care, housing or education and many more social determinants of individual health and safety.
The intent of the Utah Sexual Violence Conference is to introduce new perspectives on the challenges we have been facing individually through our therapeutic, crisis intervention or criminal justice responses. Our hope is that interconnected approaches that combine shared resources and knowledge can increase safety and accountability outcomes from all disciplines for all communities.
This event is open to the public. Professionals working in the sexual violence field or those who are interested in sexual violence issues are invited to attend. This conference will have something for everyone.
