ValorUS is committed to community centered approaches to eradicating sexual violence. By building the skills of local providers and bridging with local sexual assault programs, we can prevent and reduce generations of trauma and related social ills. We are excited to offer our annual Summer Workshop Series for Community Partners who encounter sexual assault survivors among their clients/consumers. Leveraging our collective power, these web conferences are grounded in ValorUS’ Collective Power: A Practical Blueprint for Sexual Assault Programs to Create Community Partnerships and Collaborations, a roadmap to create, foster, and sustain partnerships and collaborations between rape crisis centers/dual agencies, and organizations and sectors allied with our anti-sexual violence movement. Check out the following web conferences and register now!

This Summer workshop series is intended for local providers such as LGBTQI+ agencies, faith-based sectors, substance use and recovery services, legal services, industries, labor, and unions, campus communities, and those agencies serving people with disabilities, and other community partners. A similar virtual workshop series will be offered specifically for rape crisis centers and sexual assault programs in the Fall.
