Attendees of the 16th annual YWCA domestic and sexual violence and abuse conference.


Interpersonal violence and abuse has a traumatic impact on victims and survivors that influence all of their interactions with others. Service providers, faith leaders, law enforcement, court personnel, health care providers, teachers, employers, family, friends, and neighbors all play a role in helping or hindering victim safety and offender accountability. The YWCA Conference on Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse aims to provide training opportunities for everyone to respond positively and effectively to domestic and sexual violence and abuse. The 18th annual DSVA Conference on Friday 9/29 at the Quality Inn Conference Center invites experts to share their experience in working with men, women, and children who are impacted by violence and abuse, as well as information on best practices for services and interventions.

Thanks to sponsors Wells Fargo, Regence, Purple Purse Allstate Foundation and Tri-State Memorial Hospital for their part in starting the conversation with so much at stake.
