Goal is to foster new alliances and information sharing between anti-violence leaders from the worlds of advocacy, law, media, public health and the academy. We will encourage the development of fresh ideas and honest dialogue, and consider best practices from other social, legal and public health movements. Facilitating discussion is important, and we expect that there will be a lot of it as we share information and challenge existing modes of thinking. But discussion is only the beginning, a means to our end goal of creating lasting social and legal change for survivors.
