To protect the safety and well-being of Wisconsin advocates, for the remainder of 2020 End Abuse will offer remote training, discussion, and support sessions on most training topics that can no longer be addressed in person.
Registration for our trainings opens 6-8 weeks in advance of the training. In addition to our upcoming events, we host two ongoing training groups that meet regularly throughout the year: New Directors University (NDU) & WE LEAD.
We also provide an as-requested training called Providing Inclusive Services to LGBTQ Victims & Survivors, free to member programs of End Abuse and the WI Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA), as well as to their collaborating partners.
