New Training Opportunity for Violence Prevention Advocates

An Exciting Opportunity for Violence Prevention Advocates

Jun 19, 2009

An exciting new opportunity for advocates working to end violence against women – The Advocacy Learning Center – is accepting applications for its first class beginning in September 2009! The goal of the Advocacy Learning Center is to strengthen the core activities, skills, principles, and knowledge domestic violence programs use, so that advocacy becomes a more powerful force for change. The course presents a framework for advocates to define and structure violence prevention work, from how to engage and work with survivors, to how to strategize and change systems and community responses to violence.

Each selected organization will send a team of participants, including management and front-line staff to the course. The teams will participate in on-site and distance learning activities, conduct site visits to other social change agencies and do independent study and share what they learn with colleagues.

This two-year course is funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) and programs that receive OWV funds or are advocacy partners of an OVW-funded project are eligible to apply. Clickhere to view a flyer on the new program and for more information, or email
