2024 MIWSAC Conference (1)

The theme for this year’s conference is Uplifting Our Voices to End Sexual Violence. Our voices and our stories carry power. Uplifting the experiences of our communities brings attention, encourages connection, and sparks growth. Our voices, ALL VOICES, have a place in the work to end and prevent sexual violence, and now is our time to uplift them!

We are seeking radically inclusive workshops that both demonstrate and call attention to the many ways we can uplift our individual and collective voices to end gender based violence.

We welcome workshops that integrate both knowledge and action into culturally meaningful tools that Advocates, Survivors, Service Providers, Practitioners and our Community can use to end sexual violence.

This is an annual collaborative effort of the Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition and Men As Peacemakers. The conference also includes a Self-Care Carnival and Pow-wow.
