Welcome to our two-day virtual conference - (Re)Claiming Our Love: Social Justice & Domestic Violence.

Thank you for joining us in our mission to end society’s tolerance of domestic violence and social injustice at the second annual virtual conference, hosted by The Network - Advocating Against Domestic Violence.

This year, participants will have the opportunity to advance their understanding on models in the anti-violence and anti-oppression space that are focused on intersectionality, racial justice, abolition, decarceration and transformative justice to best serve survivors. 

Over the course of the two days, we’ll hear from activists, advocates and practitioners who are relentlessly using these approaches and models in their effort to create a violence-free world. 

The conference will center critical conversations on social justice and equity approaches and frameworks that directly influence interventions and solutions for domestic violence and other forms of violence. 

CEUs for ICDVP/CPAIP, LSW/LCSW, and LPC/LCPC will be provided for $13. Participants seeking CEUs must register and submit attendance by completing the session evaluation forms linked within each session. >> Register for CEUs HERE.
