DES MOINES, Iowa – August 8, 2017 – This September, the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV), the Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault (IowaCASA) and will host the 2017 statewide conference, Moving Together: Cultivating Dialogue for Social Change.
The conference is an opportunity to introduce the work ICADV and IowaCASA have been a part of at the national level with the Move to End Violence (MEV) Center. MEV supports leaders from across the country to step back from their daily work to envision the change they want to see, imagine new strategies, and build the capacity needed to realize this change.
Over the course of two days, local and national experts will support and guide attendees as they discuss and explore issues that have gone unaddressed in their communities and the impact they have on survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault and community violence. These include, but are not limited to:
Mandatory minimum sentences
Over reliance of the criminal justice system
