Thursday, March 13, 2014
11am Pacific Time, 2pm Eastern Time
This final web conference of the 2013-2014 #PowerInPrevention Ending Child Sexual Abuse web conference series builds on lessons learned from “convenings” held by Ms. Foundation for Women. The idea was to learn from our different lenses and approaches about what was needed to build a vibrant movement to end child sexual abuse. In this web conference presenters stories, lessons and experiences from strategic storytelling, time line and power analysis work will flow together with those of participants to apply what was learned to a broader field of work and to continue to strengthen a shared understanding of the field and movement building.
