The National LGBTQ Institute on IPV is excited to announce the 2018 Q&A for Advocates Summit! Q&A (Queers & Allies/Questions & Answers) is a one-of-a-kind training and consultation project available to DV advocates and others who want to improve their advocacy with trans and queer, bisexual lesbian, and gay survivors of abuse. Through this project, the National LGBTQ IPV Institute brings together advocates from across the country to:
- Develop assessment skills and experience;
- Share specialized info from LGBTQ survivors;
- Share information about unique issues and concerns facing our diverse LGBTQ communities;
- Problem solve around typical barriers that exist in shelters, advocate programs, anti-violence projects and queer resource centers;
- Integrate queer generated theories and information about domestic violence into work with survivors
Q&A for Advocates is open to advocates, therapists, activists, social workers, service providers and anyone who works with lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer survivors of domestic violence.
This year the summit is February 22-23, 2018 at the South Seattle Community College – Georgetown Campus in Seattle, WA.
Registration is free and open through January 31st, 2018, but make sure you reserve your space by registering at your earliest convenience.
