We are excited to share with you that our 2nd Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention Conference titled “#SoMuchAbuse-Let’s End it Together” is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 1, 2021. The Conference, offered virtually this year, expects to reach an extended audience spanning far beyond the bridges of Cape Cod.
Just as exciting is the virtual 21st Independence House Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month Community Breakfast which we are presenting on October 1, 2021 to start off the day prior to the conference.
The annual free community breakfast event brings together supporters, survivors, educators, counselors, businesses and neighbors who will hear from expert speakers, a domestic violence survivor, acquire information and action steps that assist community members in helping to prevent domestic violence, and recognize domestic violence homicide victims in Massachusetts.
The Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Conference will offer programming in areas of interest as it relates to sexual and domestic violence in faith communities, marginalized communities, and community level prevention strategies. The Prevention Conference will educate adults, teachers, counselors, coaches, supporters, businesses, friends and neighbors, on all aspects of creating healthy and safe communities. A series of workshops/seminars, speakers, vendors, and surprises will encompass the day.
The 2nd Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Conference is made possible with the support and successful year-long collaboration from members of the faith, youth, and disabilities communities who are key contributors to the program's committee, offerings, and outcomes.
