If you are new to advocacy, we invite you to join us for the Foundations of Advocacy five-session series. This interactive web-based series covers topics such as: Movement History, Dynamics of Domestic Abuse, Trauma Sensitive Practices, Community/Self-Care, Crisis Counseling, Safety Planning, Housing, Advocacy and Systems, and Legal Advocacy. (Remote, via Zoom)
Participants of this training can:
- Identify at least one “take-away” piece of new information, skill or tool from each session that will inform your advocacy work.
- Use practice/discussion opportunities to gain confidence in your advocacy skills.
- Understand how domestic violence victim advocacy work is connected to a rich history and is part of an evolving movement to dismantle systems of oppression.
- Connect to the network of advocates and allies in WI for mutual support and ongoing learning.
Sessions take place Monday-Friday, February 19-23, 2024, from 9am-12:30pm.
This remote training will be repeated in the fall, and in-person training will be offered in June.
Cost: This training is free for End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin Program Members and Programs Funded by the WI Department of Children & Families or DOJ Office of Crime Victim Services/$300 for all others.
