The Network's Legal Advocacy Training

Ensuring Survivors Access Justice & Care Training is open to member organizations only. The training series will be delivered from 9 AM to 12:30 PM over seven days starting November 2 through November 17. CEUs will be provided for a small fee. Below is a break down of the training days.

We prefer that participants attend as many sessions as they can but we understand that it is a big time commitment, which is why certain sessions are marked as 'mandatory' while others are needs-based.
