Sponsor:  Pee Dee Coalition
Date & Time: June 20, 2022 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Credit Hours:  2.75 VSP hours
Location:  Online Webinar

Program Description: Victims of high risk IPV situations often have complex needs that are best met through extensive safety planning with a victim advocate.

This webinar will provide participants with new ways of approaching complex safety plans and how to collaborate wisely with other victim service agencies to enhance victim safety.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify three barriers that complex IPV cases may have in seeking assistance from a victim advocate.

SC KNOWMORE WEBINAR SERIES: The Power of 3: Services, Safety, & Sanctuary for BIPOC Students

Sponsor:  South Carolina Coalition against Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault (SCCADVASA)
Date & Time: June 24, 2022 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Credit Hours: 2
Location:  Online Webinar

Program Description: South Carolina is home to over 60 colleges and universities, including eight historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The primary goal of this training is to build collaborative partnerships between our member organizations and our college campuses in South Carolina. In particular, how can our member organizations better support our BIPOC (Black, indigenous, and people of color) student populations within South Carolina? How might we better meet their needs, better communicate our services to this population, and tailor our outreach events to build better connections? This presentation will be focused on the unique needs of BIPOC populations, how those needs might be different at HBCUs vs. predominantly-white institutions, and how our DV/SA organizations and college campuses can work together to support student survivors both on and off campus. 

Objectives

  • Gain a greater awareness of the cultural and historical needs of BIPOC students on college and university campuses 
  • Increase their collaboration skills when working with local college and university campuses (including HBCUs) 
  • Learn strategies to create impactful programming for BIPOC students at HBCUs and predominantly-white institutions
