Date: Friday, May 10, 2019
Time: 4:00 am – 5:30 am ChST
Content: Advocates’ skills and expertise make them uniquely qualified to lead community efforts to develop effective, empowerment-based responses to risks posed by abusive intimate partners with access to firearms, but their role is too often minimized. This webinar will provide participants with the knowledge, perspective, and skills to garner the necessary public support to make positive, lasting, impactful change. As a part of this process, it is crucial that advocates and other officials critically evaluate their current policies and practices, individually and as they relate to the systemic response. This webinar will offer advocates considerations for reviewing their practices, to enhance their program response and improve their services, and model the same for others in their community. This will lead to a more holistic approach which respects survivor choice, encourages creative option generation, and prioritizes safety.
