Rural Sustainability Part 1: Orientation & Training
Topic: Rural Sustainability Part 1: Orientation & Training
Hosted By: Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault
Time: 5:00 AM ChST
Description: We all know what it feels like to be dunked in to the deep end of the swimming pool before we really know how to swim. Confusing, scary, and uncertain! So how do we avoid dunking new advocates into the deep end when our work is so busy and there is so much work to be done? Join Leah Green and Val Davis for an interactive conversation about orienting, training, and supervising new rural advocates. This conversation will help rural programs set themselves up for sustainable sexual assault services with creative and supported advocates for years to come.

STAND UP AGAINST STREET HARASSMENT
Topic: STAND UP AGAINST STREET HARASSMENT
Hosted By: Hollaback
Time: 8:00 AM ChST
Description: All across the United States, girls, women, and transgender and gender non-binary individuals experience street harassment simply because of their gender identity or gender expression. We all have a responsibility to do something when we see street harassment happening, but too often we freeze. We don’t know what to do. Bystander intervention gives us tools to intervene without compromising our own safety. When we intervene, we don’t just reduce trauma for the person being street harassed. We also start to chip away at the culture that allows harassment to be so prevalent. Join us. Be part of the change.
