ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, survivors, and the advocates who work tirelessly to address sexual violence in our communities, The Center for Family Justice is discussing survivor-led, culturally competent service delivery with Rachel Lloyd, the founder and CEO of Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS). GEMS is one of the country's leading organizations for empowering commercially sexually exploited and domestically trafficked girls and young women.
This event is 2 hours long and will enable folks to interact with Rachel in a Q&A session.
This event is perfect for service providers, anyone who screens for violence in their work with youth or adults, folks interested in the work to eradicate trafficking, college students with focus on health and human services, social justice, and public health, as well as the general public looking to learn more during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The Center for Family Justice (CFJ) provides free and confidential trauma-informed services and coordinates care for all victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, human trafficking, and child abuse in six towns in Fairfield County, Connecticut: Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford, and Trumbull.
CFJ provides expert prevention education and training in our communities to create social change. Our goal is to break the cycle of violence by building healthy relationships, empowering communities, and mobilizing bystanders to speak out about abuse and violence.
