Healing from Multiple Traumas: LGBT People of Color and Sexual Violence
with guest trainers In Our Own Voices
9:00am – 4:30pm
The NCCASA Training Institute is honored to have guest trainers from In Our Own Voices, Gabby Santos, Director of LGBT Health Services, and Kathy Grant, Social Worker, provide this training. The goal of the training is to address the multiple issues that impact LGBT POC who are also survivors of sexual violence.
Social and Institutional disparities contribute to the overall well-being of LGBT people of color (POC).

This training will address how oppression and historical trauma impacts LGBT POC survivors of sexual violence. Facilitators will share examples of the effects of racism, homophobia and transphobia, as well as engage participants on culturally relevant interventions to eliminate stigma and empower the health and well-being of LGBT communities of color.
- To learn how oppression and historical trauma impact LGBT POC.
- To identify barriers that exist for LGBT POC survivors of sexual violence.
- To learn the importance of cultural considerations when working with LGBT POC.
- To gain promising practices and considerations in working with LGBT survivors of color.
The training will be from 9:00am – 4:30pm with registration from 8:30am – 9:00am. Light snacks and lunch will be provided! This training open to current NCCASA members only. Participants will be provided with the training address after registering.
2018 Spring Member Meeting
9:00am – 3:00pm
Over the past six months, sexual violence has been prevalent in the media and public discussion in ways that we haven’t seen before. We’ve been hearing from you, our members, questions about what we do now, how we can talk about #MeToo in our communities, and how we can leverage this moment to make real change for survivors and in our culture. At this Member Meeting, we will come together to talk and plan about what we can do together and individually in this time of #MeToo.
At the same time, we know that each of you continues the day-to-day hard work of serving survivors, raising awareness, and doing prevention work locally. At this Member Meeting, we will discuss and share ideas about some of the concrete challenges that you face in doing that work, and we will talk about ways to take care of ourselves and each other as we do it. Finally, to make sure that we are doing everything we can to support your work, we will also share with you what NCCASA has coming up in 2018 and have opportunities for you to let us know what else you would like to see from us.
The Member Meeting will be from 9:00am – 3:00pm with registration from 8:30am – 9:00am. Light snacks and lunch will be provided! This training open to current NCCASA members only. Participants will be provided with the training address after registering.
