At this years National Sexual Assault Conference in Hollywood, CA, CALCASA hosted a variety of workshops dedicated to Intervention/Advocacy for advocates working with survivors of sexual violence. Among these workshops was a session entitled: Engaging Community and Systems to Build a Rural Sexual Assault Program.
This workshop provided attendees with a background on the key steps necessary to establish a sexual assault program in a rural community. Attendees learned about the unique challenges in a rural community, as well as innovative models created to establish services in two rural communities. Attendees took a walk in the shoes of a survivor from a rural community to better understand the unique challenges, as well as understand the impact of the community and systems response.
