About the Summit
Date: July 27 - 30, 2015
Location: San Francisco, CA
This unique 3-day training will focus on the various complex issues and concerns that come from the intersection of technology and domestic & sexual violence, stalking, and trafficking.
Covering a wide range of technology-related issues that will be helpful to anyone working with victims, sessions will be organized by advocacy, law enforcement, and legal professionals for participants to easily choose workshops most applicable to them.
Participants will be given tools and information to respond to technology abuse, to enhance services for survivors of violence, and to hold offenders accountable. In addition to incredible attendees from all over the United States and internationally, our excellent faculty includes the Safety Net Team; survivors; national experts on technology, confidentiality, and privacy’ technology developers and representatives from technology companies; and leaders in law enforcement, domestic violence, and the legal field.
Apply for a Registration Scholarship - Closed
We are pleased to announce that we are able to offer registration scholarships. Because of our budget constraints, we can only offer to waive registration. If you receive a scholarship, you will still need to pay for your own travel, lodgings, and meal costs. Please note that we will provide breakfast and snacks for all 3 days; however, all lunches and dinners are on your own.
All scholarship recipients will be notified via email by June 15, 2015. We will confirm your application but we will only reach out to you if you are a scholarship recipient.
Request for Proposal - Closed
For the first time, we are soliciting workshop proposals. We are looking for sessions that will provide tools and information to respond to technology abuse, enhance services for survivors of abuse, and hold offenders accountable. Is your organization using technology to work more effectively with survivors? Has your program or community responded in innovative ways to abusers’ misuse of technology? Have you worked creatively to use technology in ways that maximize survivor privacy and safety? We’re seeking content that will be applicable to service providers, criminal justice professionals, the legal community, and survivors.
Proposals should be survivor-centered, trauma-informed, and include culturally competent approaches. The session content should include innovative strategies and support best practices. All workshops will be 60-90 minutes in length.
Proposals will be accepted from State Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalitions, National Technical Assistance Providers, local domestic violence and sexual assault programs, and other anti-violence programs.

Feedback from participants:
“Topics that were addressed were very informative, up to date, and thought provoking. The sessions helped me realize ways in which technology is abused that I was not aware of before.”
“I really enjoyed the variety of key note speakers, workshops, panel discussions and tech demonstrations. I loved that many of the technology company representatives present were asking questions of advocates about how the companies could most effectively create change.”
“The overall tone of the event allowed for participants of different backgrounds, knowledge and experience levels to participate equally. The topics were exceptional—I have never attended any conference where there weren’t at least a couple of duds and this wasn't the case.”
