I attend EVAW conferences at least yearly and am always please with the up to date information provided. The work they do benefits all those wroking in the fields of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault by helping provide the tools we need in order to better serve the victims of these horrendous crimes.
It's also always nice for me to simply spend time with others who are as passionate as I am about ending abuse, educating our communities, helping victims become survivors then thrivers, and holding batterers accountable.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Developing tools that I've been able to use in the training of Officers I have to do. The statistics and research provided by EVAW is always a must in the presentations that I give. It helps show the impact that Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault have on entire communities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

i would grant them more funding to be better able to serve communities on a more personal level. I would also devote a little more effort into helping rural communities and fighting the often seen "good ol boy" mentality of officers in rural communities.

EVAW International (EVAWI) has worked to bring all first responders to sexual assault together for training and collaboration to benefit victims everywhere. EVAWI is now sponsoring a "Start by Believing" campaign to reach out to families, friends and the public and ensure an appropriate response to the reporting of sexual assualt. EVAWI remains on the forefront of training and research in the areas of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking.

I am a survivor of marital rape. I first attended a EVAWI Conference several years ago. I was most impressed with the caliber of the Conference, the speakers and the topics. This forum brought together all disciplines who deal with victims of sexual and interpersonal violence. It was great to meet others who worked in this field. EVAWI raises the awareness of the problems of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking to the community at large. Violence against women and children is a global pproblem and is direclty linked to physical and mental helath problems in our families. I applaud this organization for their outreach and education efforts and I implore all to help EVAWI in any way that they can. I dream of a world where my grand daughter will not have to live in fear and can walk in freedom. Until that time, it is great to know that EVAWI is there to keep this topic in the forefront.

I am a Director of a Batterer Reducation Program. I have 30 years experience working on issues of violence against women.

I have found EVAW training very educational in all areas addressing violence against women. I work as the victim services program director in a city attorney's office so I appreciate education from several points of view: i.e. law enforcement, prosecution, and victim services. I have attended classes from Stalking to domestc violence to sexual assault, as well as those designed to help service workers' compassion and fatigue issues. The all encompassing nature of EVAW conferences makes this a valuable opportunity for me.

I became familiar with EVAW at a training more than 4 years ago at a training in TN. While I am not law enforcement, I found their information to be useful in my work as a victim advocate. Additionally, I have utilized their online training modules and incorporated some of their information into my own trainings of advocates. their work is invaluable and I am thankful they exist.

EVAWI provides excellent training, resources and technical assistance. We are always happy to have them come train professionals in our state. The resources they provide are current, user friendly and professional. When you have a question or need advice, the staff are just a phone call away.
EVAWI inspires us all to keep moving forward and never give up. They listen to your needs and provide encouragement; this is evident with their Start by Believing Campaign.

Resources that we have obtained through EVAWI have been passed on to advocates in the field to assist in cross training disciplines to improve their response to victims of sexual assault and stalking. I'm very excited about attending my first EVAWI conference this year!
