NCVLI Co-Sponsors Upcoming SART Conference

January 12, 2011

NCVLI is proud to be a co-sponsor of the Sixth National Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Training Conference.  The Conference is hosted by the SANE-SART Resource Service in Minneapolis, MN, in conjunction with the Office for Victims of Crime, within the Office of Justice Programs, at the U.S. Department of Justice.  The Conference will be held May 25 -27, 2011 in Austin, Texas.  The Conference offers a unique training opportunity for professionals who respond to sexual assault cases across the United States.  Join medical personnel, victim advocates, law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, crime lab personnel, and others involved in community response to this crime as they seek to build their community’s capacity to:

  • Promote health and healing of victims;
  • Hold offenders accountable for their crimes; and
  • Realize the hope of preventing further sexual violence.

This year’s conference, SART: Together We Can!, highlights exciting advances that SARTs are making and strategies being employed to tackle the challenges they face.  By training together, SART members can gain knowledge and motivation to jointly assess the effectiveness of their current efforts, consider ways to overcome roadblocks, and plan positive changes.  They can also examine ways to widen “the circle of victims” they serve and issues they address.
