Participants must register through the online registration form on the YWCA Events page (link in Website). This presentation will help participants understand the root causes of sexual violence, its prevalence, its impact on survivors, and the dynamics that make sexual violence a stigmatizing crime. The presenter will discuss how perpetrators of sexual violence chose victims based on perceived or created vulnerability and lack of credibility. Oppressed communities are often perceived as more vulnerable, and have less perceived credibility than privileged classes of people and therefore are often targeted by perpetrators. Presented by Fawn Livingston-Gray (Portland Women’s Crisis Line) *fulfills training required for 40-hour Domestic Violence Advocate Training

Working with a participant who needs housing, mental health care, or childcare? Money affects our daily lives in so many ways. Come learn all about credit, student loans, and dreaded budgeting! Ever wonder what resources there are in your community around financial goals and how we can integrate trauma-informed practice to financial matters? Then this session is for you. Got debt? Don’t worry, you don’t have to be perfect to help someone navigate their financial goals, and we will spend time talking about how advocates and volunteers alike can integrate these ideas into their own lives.
