PreventConnect and the Ms. Foundation for Women announce the next free event in the Ending Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Web Series: Unique Opporutnities for CSA Prevention: Learning from migrant farmworker communities on Monday, September 29th at 2pmET/1pmCT/11amPT

The intersections of vulnerability that occur for children are often most acute when they are apart of marginalized communities. Children of migrant farmworkers are commonly at the center of these intersections because of unique pressures on them and their families. In this web conference, speakers will discuss how they utilize popular education frameworks and principles based on Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed as the basis for their work organizing and mobilizing farm worker communities around child sexual abuse prevention work.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the risk factors that contribute to child sexual abuse for children in migrant farm worker communities.
  • Understand how an anti-oppression framework can be utilized to prevent child sexual abuse.
  • Identifying opportunities for engaging adults in preventing child sexual abuse in migrant farm worker communities

Presenters:

  • Kimber J. Nicoletti MSW, Founder and Director of Multicultural Efforts to End Sexual Assault (MESA) at Purdue University
  • Mily TreviƱo-Sauceda, co-founder of "Mujeres Mexicanas" (Mexican Women), in the Coachella Valley - a campesinas advocacy group
