Description

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), in partnership with the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS), will be holding our next conference, Preserving Our Roots While Looking to the Future, July 21-25, 2012 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Denver, Colorado.

Join the many advocates, activists, survivors and allies working to end domestic violence for this critical conference aimed at challenging and informing those working within the movement and/or "system" to provide the most effective solutions and support to domestic violence victims. At each NCADV conference, we work to connect and empower victims and survivors of domestic (and other forms of) violence through specialized workshops and discussion sessions, strategy sessions, survivor institutes, caucus meetings, our Survivor Speak-out, and other organized events aimed at providing a space for victims and survivors to process their experiences, connect with others and heal. Our conference themes, workshops, presenters and events are structured to provide victim service providers and allied professionals with the information they most need to guide, challenge and improve their work.

The National Organization for Men AgainstSexism (NOMAS) is an activist organization of men and women supporting positive changes for men. At NOMAS' Men and Masculinity conferences, we evaluate and examine diverse aspects in gender identity, gender roles, the construction of masculinity, and the experiences of men's lives, specifically as related to the role of men as allies to the women's and sexual assault domestic violence movements.

The plenary sessions that will be held over the course of the conference will be on the topics of:

Intersecting Violences
Radical Solutions for Ending Violence
Women's Use of Violence
The Effects of Domestic Violence on Children

NCADV will be offering five workshop tracks during this conference (workshop tracks consist of 5 workshops and 2 strategy sessions on the specific topics below):

The Effects of Domestic Violence on Children
Intersecting Violences

National Organization for Men Against Sexism

We will also be offering mini-tracks (up to a total of 4 sessions over the course of the conference) on the topics of:

We will be offering topic-specific strategy sessions on the afternoons of Monday, July 23rd and Tuesday, July 24th. The aim of these strategy sessions is for attendees to strategize, plan and produce a suggested idea or solution for addressing the issue of the session they attend. The idea or solution can take any form (ex: a call to the movement, a toolkit, a resource list, etc.). NCADV will distribute these ideas to the field following the conference.

Following the conference, we will be offering two post-conference institutes from 1pm to 5pm on Wednesday, July 25th:
