Conference Description

The 12th Annual International Family Justice Center Conference, hosted by the Family Justice Center Alliance, will include discussions on issues related to the handling of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, elder abuse and stalking cases in the context of the Family Justice Center model. The Alliance welcomes law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, shelter staff, community-based victim advocates, civil attorneys, judges, counselors, policy makers, elected officials, board members, survivors, parole and probation officers, rape crisis workers, medical personnel, educators, and all others interested in the future of family violence prevention. The conference faculty includes nationally and internationally recognized subject matter experts, advocates, and survivors.



The theme for our conference this year is "Coming Together to Change the World." This conference will focus on leadership, accountability to survivors, guiding principles and promising practices in the rapidly evolving national and international movement toward Family Justice Centers and other approaches to co-located, multidisciplinary services for victims of family violence and their children.  The conference will also include practical, hands-on training for police officers, prosecutors, advocates, and medical professionals in the day to day handling of domestic violence and sexual assault cases.

This year’s conference features the New Orleans Family Justice Center and will have a special focus on sexual assault. Specific sessions will be tailored to address sexual assault awareness, prevention, and intervention.
