WHERE:
INFORMATION: The built environment of communal living DV shelter facilities and the ramifications that come from accommodating those physical structures (screening, sex-segregation, staffing demands, policing of resident behaviors in communal living etc) create profound barriers to LGBTQ access to services. This webinar will push programs to re-think traditional approaches to communal emergency shelter and offer new concepts for the physical shelter environment as well as emerging best practices for “sheltering’.

When: 11/04/2014 , 2:00 PM
WHAT: Awareness Event
WHERE: Twitter at #ViolenceLinks
INFORMATION: Different types of violence are connected and often share the same root causes. They can all take place under one roof, in the same community, at the same time, or at different stages of life. Understanding the overlapping causes of violence and the things that can protect people and communities helps us better prevent violence in all its forms. Join Prevention Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for a Q&A Session on the links among multiple forms of violence.
