With almost 900 participants representing a diverse range of sexual assault professionals from rape crisis centers, survivors, coalitions, prevention programs, allied organizations, public health departments, criminal justice agencies and the military, the 2010 National Sexual Assault Conference was a great success.
The theme — Building the World We Want to Live In — encouraged attendees to create positive action to end sexual violence. During the three-day conference, people had the opportunity to experience, share and learn strategies about building a world we want to live in.
There were more than 80 workshops in the following tracks: advocacy/intervention; prevention; legal; military; leadership development; media and film; technology; eliminating prison rape; sex offender management; and wellness. Additionally, there was a strong focus on technology and social media, including an amazing exhibit hall with the “Tech Lounge.”
We are thankful for all the inspiring people who attended the 2010 National Sexual Assault Conference, and we look forward to another successful event next year in Baltimore. For more information about next year’s event, go to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s website.
