**Call for Proposals**

NCCASA’s 2015 Conference, Sexual Violence at the Intersections, will focus on the importance of converging social justice movements, as we work collectively toward equity for all people and a society free of sexual assault and other forms of violence. We will also highlight issues of sexual violence including, but not limited to, campus work (Title IX & Clery Act), military sexual assault, human trafficking, and the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).  We are looking for workshops that address primary prevention, service delivery & intervention, enhancing agency capacity, outreach, community organizing, and program management & development.

Workshops are 90 minutes in duration and we are looking for trainers who are interactive, engaging, and provide participants with something tangible.  We envision workshops that go beyond lecture style presentations we are accustomed to and encourage a delivery style such as TEDTalks, Train the Trainer, case studies, or small group work.  Our goal is to offer participants a conference experience with minimal lecture that promotes participation amongst attendees.

The Conference Committee comprised of NCCASA members and allied professionals will select workshops based on the content of the proposal and the relevancy to the 2015 conference.
