    ABOUT THE SUMMIT:

    The Summit is a capacity-building event, which is designed to support communities to implement prevention strategies specific to sexual assault and domestic violence.  Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about innovative community-based prevention strategies that are underway at the local, state, and national level, as well as network and dialogue with their prevention colleagues from across the state.


    ABOUT THE KEYNOTE:

    Ms. Nubia Peña, received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law in May 2016. She was selected as one of 25 law students in the nation to be recognized and highlighted for her social justice activism in the National Jurist, a leading news source in legal education. Ms. Peña has actively sought to bring awareness to issues of violence and systemic oppression through her personal and professional endeavors. She has close to a decade of experience assisting survivors of domestic abuse, sexual assault, and victims of violent crimes as a Law Enforcement Victim Advocate. Since 2007, Ms. Peña has been the Training and Prevention Education Specialist at the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA) where she developed trainings on Teen Dating Violence, Latino Youth Empowerment, Assisting and Empowering Immigrant Survivors, and Understanding Rape and Sexual Assault. Her most recent endeavors include bringing awareness across the U.S. to the intersections of violence prevention and the School-to-Prison Pipeline, a national epidemic that targets our most vulnerable youth with disproportionate school discipline practices that streamline them into juvenile detention centers. In addition, Ms. Peña served as the Program Coordinator for the Racially Just Utah Coalition where their mission is to positively and proactively ensure racial equality in Utah through policy reform, accountability, and education. Ms. Pena has recently joined the zealous team at the Utah Juvenile Defenders Office where she advocates for youth rights during detention and delinquency proceedings.

    ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS (all workshops will be offered twice):

    WORKSHOP I: Practice A.R.T.: How to Apply the Basics of Anti-Discrimination Response Training in Prevention Efforts. Nubia Peña, Training and Prevention Education Specialist at the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA)

    During this workshop, we will go beyond the fundamentals of traditional diversity workshops by learning to apply techniques that set clear boundaries when witnessing discrimination, encouraging group norms that discrimination will not be tolerated, and maximizing on moments when paradigm shifts are possible. This training will encourage rape prevention educators to incorporate anti-discrimination advocacy throughout their entire curriculum instead of reserving it for one section, which is less likely to encourage empathy and cohesion among participants within their larger community.

    WORKSHOP IIJust Beginnings Collaboration. Strong Oak, Visioning B.E.A.R. Circle Inter-Tribal Coalition & Meg Stone, Impact Boston are both inaugural grantee organizations of the Just Beginnings Collaborative, a national network of leaders and organizations working in the movement to end child sexual abuse. Their work has tremendous impact in MA and beyond in representing unique strategies designed to raise visibility and setting strategic priorities for a world without child sexual abuse.  Together, they will discuss their approaches to this work, and the theory of change that underlies their programming.
