New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault’s Annual Conference, May 9-10
This Thursday two Support New Yorkers will be speaking at the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault’s Annual Conference in Albany. This year’s theme, “Weaving A World Without Violence,” signifies all of the tremendous work so many of the various organizations and presenters are doing to address violence in their communities. Topics will include bystanders’ work to prevent violence, mobilizing men and youth to prevent sexual assault, and the use of art therapy in healing.
Leah Todd and Sarah Hanks, a member of For the Birds, will present a panel about the work of the Support New York Collective entitled “Community Accountability and Transformative Justice: An Alternative Approach to Responding to Intimate Partner Violence”.
