2011 OVC Sexual Assault Response Team Training announcement

Sixth National Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Training Conference will be held  May 25 – 27, 2011, in Austin, Texas.  Scholarships are available.

The primary focus of the 2011 SART Training Conference will once again expand the capacity of SARTs to promote health and healing of sexual assault victims, hold sex offenders accountable for their crimes, and realize the hope of preventing further sexual violence in their communities.

The training in 2011 will add an additional concentration on responding to victims of sexual assault in Indian Country. This focus will serve to help practitioners increase their collective capacity to respond to sexual assault, provide them a forum to consider how to best facilitate healing and justice for Native victims, and ultimately meet the goal of developing sustainable and high-functioning SANE/SART programs in Tribal communities.
