The Path Forward: Tapping into what we know to chart the future of the movement
Presented by Karen Tronsgard-Scott, Executive Director of the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence
The movement to end gendered violence, or violence against women and girls, is a part of an ever changing panoply of social change efforts. This day-long conversation offers us the chance to explore how we fit into this larger social change arena, how leadership in a dynamic world creates pathways toward transformation, and how we can individually and collectively broaden and deepen our impact through practice and understanding.
