        Keynote Speakers:

        June 8

        We welcome keynote speaker Nubia Peña (see bio), training and prevention education specialist of the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault and program coordinator for Racially Just Utah Coalition. Anti-sexual violence advocates and community partners must be aware of current issues that increase a youth’s vulnerability to perpetration in order to create innovative and relevant ways of engaging with targeted youth. This presentation will provide an overview of the school-to-prison pipeline (STPP) and the various intersections of vulnerability that increase a child’s risk of victimization. In addition, advocates will be encouraged to get involved in mitigating STPP issues to increase protective factors within schools by addressing policy change and reform.

        Watch a video of Nubia Pena presenting in a series called 'Ignite Talk' by CALCASA. Part 4 is 'Disciplined Too Young & Too Often'

         

        June 9

        We welcome keynote speaker Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. (see bio), founder of The White Privilege Institute and founder/program director of the White Privilege Conference. Dr. Moore will present Diversity, Privilege and Leadership: Are We Making Any Progress in the 21st Century? This interactive, informational, challenging and energetic session examines and explores issues of diversity, privilege, oppression and leadership across America. We all have an excellent opportunity to be positive role models, powerful decision makers, and effective agents of change, if we have the tools. Are we making any progress?

        Watch a video in which Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. reflects on the impact of embracing diversity.

        During lunch, WCASA will present the Voices of Courage Awards, which recognize individuals whose work and commitment to ending sexual violence goes above and beyond what is expected of them. See the link above if you are interested in nominating someone.

        The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) is a statewide organization incorporated in 1985 to support and complement the work of Wisconsin’s community-based sexual assault service provider programs and other organizations working to end sexual violence. WCASA works in collaboration with communities throughout the state to support existing services to victims/survivors of sexual violence, to plan for the development of new services, to create and support community prevention efforts, and to stimulate community ownership of the issue of sexual violence.

        Our work encompasses both intervention and prevention. For sexual violence to be eradicated, it must be met with a comprehensive response; this includes interceding where violence is happening to provide safety, support, and resources to those impacted by it (intervention), as well as educational outreach and social climate change which informs behavioral choices people make and precludes sexual violence from occurring in the first place (prevention). We see these activities as two sides of the same coin.
