Conference Information

The 2020 Annual Conference will be held June 17th and 18th at the Conference Center at OCLC in Dublin, OH. The SART pre-conference will be held on June 16th.

Conference Theme

This year’s Annual Conference seeks to explore three foundations of sexual violence prevention and intervention – accountability, bravery and community – as we consider ways to “Restore our Roots”. Just like the survivors who have always inspired this work, our roots are strong, bold and resilient! But there is always room to grow and our desire is for this conference to provide the inspiration, tools, training, and conversations to help everyone dig deep and flourish. As we reflect and honor the work done before us, we must also acknowledge past traumas
and shortcomings as well. We can thrive if we are willing to examine our roots and challenge the barriers that have prevented our growth. We hope you will join us in considering new possibilities for accountability, bravery and community within the sexual violence movement. You might experience a little pruning, but we know you will be nourished!
