  1. 2018 Mississippi Teen Dating Violence Summit Call for Presentations

    Comments Off on 2018 Mississippi Teen Dating Violence Summit Call for Presentations

    The Teen Dating Violence Summit is a kick-off for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (February). There will be sessions for teens and their parents/chaperones/leaders to learn about the red flags of dating violence, how to intervene in abusive situations, and how to make healthy choices. The attendees will be able to take these lessons back to their communities/organizations/schools around the state.

     

    MCADV is partnering with the Office Against Interpersonal Violence and several programs around the state, including domestic violence shelter programs, to provide the most comprehensive (and fun!) summit possible. MCADV’s Teen Dating Violence Prevention Planning Committee is seeking presentations for 60-90 minute keynote AND breakout sessions that are diverse, practical and address critical issues of importance in creating an environment where dating violence is identified and rejected as the societal norm. The goal of this summit is to build skills, knowledge and awareness in order to effectively and appropriately prevent dating violence where possible, and intervene in already actualized abusive situations.Proposals should be teen-centered and include culturally competent, evidence-based, and practice-informed approaches. The sessions should include innovative strategies and support best practices.

     

    Invited session topics include but are not limited to:

    Red Flags of Abuse • Pattern of Abuse • Relationship Messages in the Media • Communicating with Your Teen • Breaking Up Safely • Cyber Abuse • Sexting • Dating Violence in the LGBTQ Community • Engaging Youth • Sexual Assault • Stalking • Prevention Strategies • Intervention Strategies • Evidence-based and practice-informed prevention approaches • Healthy growth and sexuality • Making Healthy Choices • Addressing Dating Violence in Underserved Populations (LEP, disabled, rural, etc.)

     

    Conference related expenses will be decided on an individual basis by the committee. Each room will have a laptop, projector, sound system and internet access.

    Comments Off on 8th Annual Purple for Peace

    Purple for Peace is an annual luncheon that promotes family violence prevention in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and celebrates domestic violence survivors, advocates and friends.


    The 8th Annual Purple for Peace is a luncheon that promotes family violence prevention in recognition of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October). The event will be held Thursday, October 5, 2017, at the Hilton Jackson Hotel, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. The theme for this year’s luncheon is “Power Lines: Channeling Faith and Hope to Victims of Domestic Violence.” In every faith, religious leaders and spiritual teachers are some of the first responders to victims of domestic violence. After the event, we will roll out our training calendar for religious leaders, to make sure they’re equipped to provide their spiritual bodies with accurate information and relevant resources.

    The Purple Peace Prize honoree is Governor Phil Bryant, whose entire career has included advocacy for victims of domestic violence. In keeping with the event’s theme of “Power Lines: Channeling Faith and Hope to Victims of Domestic Violence,” the Coalition will recognize community members whose efforts have worked to move the needle on perceptions of domestic violence and to give domestic violence survivors hope for a violence-free future. These honorees are Bishop James Swanson, Sr., Attorney Gail Thompson, and John “Pat” Brown, publisher of The Magee Courier and Simpson County News.

    The 8th Annual Purple for Peace is sponsored by Magnolia Federal Credit Union, the Beta Alpha Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC, and Baria-Jones, PLLC.
