Morning Workshop | 10:00am - 11:30am




Immigrant survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse face a variety of barriers to accessing services, which have only been exacerbated by recent policy initiatives and increased enforcement activities. This session, led by Erin Barbato of the University of Wisconsin Law School, will provide an overview of the legal protections immigrant survivors may utilize, while also offering a perspective from advocates who are working “on the ground” with clients here in Wisconsin. Attendees will receive practical information as to how multi-disciplinary teams across the state can
incorporate a focus on immigration to ensure their efforts to address sexual violence and domestic abuse are meeting the needs of all survivors in their communities.


Afternoon Breakout Sessions | 1:00pm - 3:00pm




Our work within the domestic violence field requires us to coordinate with various systems in order to develop a cohesive, community response to survivors. Although building these relationships is best practice, those working within these systems often have limited opportunity for open, honest communication with one another in their day-to-day work. Please join Adrienne Roach, End Abuse’s Policy & Systems Analyst, in a panel discussion with representatives from child welfare, batterer’s treatment, and the faith community to explore how systems can break down traditional barriers to support survivors and foster safer and healthier communities.




In this session, facilitators will go over the legal services now available to victims of crime – sexual assault, in particular – at Legal Action of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Judicare. These legal services include advice and representation on victims’ rights as they go through the criminal justice process, from reporting to restitution. However, the legal services offered are not limited to the criminal justice system – and also include assistance with civil legal issues including: housing, restraining orders, and discrimination claims in the workplace or on campus. This session will also briefly touch on common victims’ rights questions, discuss available legal services, and how to make referrals.

Webinar: Confidentiality Basics for Domestic Violence Advocates



Date & Time: November 10 at 1pm


Description: This webinar will introduce the basics of confidentiality for domestic abuse advocates. We will consider the importance of confidentiality in light of fundamental advocacy principles, like survivor empowerment and being survivor-centered. We will also look at the basic provisions of state and federal laws that protect client information. Participants will understand when these laws prohibit the release of information. We will give guidance on how to resolve situations in which the obligation to maintain confidentiality may conflict with other needs or demands.
