Pre-Conference Consultation: Sexual Assault Prevention, Education and Response in BC
EVA BC organized this consultation on November 14, 2018 with the goal of bringing together representatives from a range of programs that have historically been key stakeholders in the provision of prevention, education, response, training, advocacy and policy for sexual assault survivors, to discuss current strengths and gaps and what we collectively would like to see in place going forward.
