The National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) brings together over 1,700 people who are invested in the response to and prevention of sexual violence. The conference facilitates opportunities to share information and resources, advance learning, develop skills, and increase professional capacity to support survivors of sexual assault, to raise the profile of sexual assault as an important community health and justice issue, and to prevent sexual assault from happening. This year with sexual violence taking over prominent news headlines this gathering is going to be more important than ever. The national conversation is focused on sexual violence and we can plan together to make bold moves.

The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault is excited to announce a call for workshop proposals for the 2018 National Sexual Assault Conference, in Anaheim, CA, at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel. The theme of the conference is “Bold Moves: Ending Sexual Violence in One Generation.”
