2017 Move to End Violence Iowa Statewide Conference
The Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV), the Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault (IowaCASA) and their statewide network of Culturally Specific Victim Service Programs invite you to join them at the Moving Together: Cultivating Dialogue for Social Change Conference this fall.
The conference will be September 27-28, 2017, at the Holiday Inn Airport/Conference Center in Des Moines.
The conference is an opportunity to roll out the work ICADV and IowaCASA have been a part of at the national level with the Move to End Violence (MEV) Center. MEV supports leaders within the movement to end violence field from across the country to step back from their daily work to envision the change they want to see, imagine new strategies and build the capacity needed to realize this change.
Over the course of two days, local and national experts will help attendees explore the issues of intimate partner, sexual, and communal violence by readjusting their lens and connecting issues that have been present in their communities and have gone unaddressed. These include but are not limited to mass incarceration, over reliance to the criminal justice system, mandatory minimums, state violence, racism, poverty, class, LGBTQ rights and voter rights.
Together, participants will outline and develop strategies and next steps to strengthen and build their communities to reach all survivors of violence and enhance community healing.
For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Lindsay Pingel, director of Community Engagement, at the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence at 515-421-4658.
