Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence provides training and technical assistance to individuals and communities who are seeking to increase their understanding of sexual violence and enhance their skills in supporting survivors of sexual violence.
Our trainings are centered on victims/survivors, informed by research, and based on best practices. The Alliance staff is invested in tailoring all trainings to meet the needs of our audiences; therefore, the length and content are developed to meet your specific needs. Trainings can be anywhere from one hour to multiple days in length. The Alliance is committed to providing trainings that meet the needs of communities working to support survivors and end sexual violence.

Leigh Ann Davis, the Director of Criminal Justice Initiatives for The Arc, will highlight ways to better collaborate with community partners and advocate for survivors of sexual violence with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD). She was most recently featured in the NPR article “The Sexual Assault Epidemic No One Talks About,” which highlighted the staggering rates of sexual violence against people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She is a national expert on advocacy for people with I/DD and the criminal justice system. This is part one of a two-part event.

Leigh Ann Davis will lead an in-depth community conversation on how to implement all that we learned about supporting survivors with intellectual and developmental disabilities during the event that morning. This is part two of a two-part event. It will focus on the following questions: How do we create a collaborative team to ensure survivors with I/DD receive the support they deserve? What are the resources we already have here in Connecticut? Where do we go next?
