The Texas Association Against Sexual Assault will be hosting the 2017 National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) in Texas for the first time. The purpose of the conference is to provide a national training opportunity for 1500+ workers from rape crisis centers, state sexual assault coalitions and other allies (medical professionals, law enforcement, campus rape crisis programs, public health department workers, and others) from across the United States and its territories. Registration opens February 8, 2017.
NSAC features a wide range of workshop topics suited to the diverse audience. Minimally, tracks include sexual assault prevention, trauma recovery, legal issues and advocacy, reaching underserved communities, leadership development in underserved communities, and management and policy. This conference is the primary opportunity to showcase best practices in the field and connect the work of leaders and workers across the nation in the effort to end sexual violence and reduce the trauma experienced by survivors.
