Request for Proposal
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.”
