Advocates' Retreat & Conference

DCADV is excited to bring you the 2021 Virtual Advocates’ Retreat and Conference Series! Each year, this action-oriented conference brings together survivors, advocates, and victim service providers to connect, share information, and engage in critical thinking analysis about efforts needed to address and prevent intimate partner violence, family violence, sexual violence, dating violence, and/or stalking. For the health and safety of all involved, we've moved this year's conference online in a series of webinars over the spring/summer of 2021.


All webinars run 90 minutes.  All start times are in Eastern Time.  Registration will open 6 weeks before each webinar.  All webinars will be recorded and made available after the session.  Registration is free!

Soul Moves

"We believe movement is a powerful and transformative force. One we can experiment with - flow with- be challenged by - and use as a tender, soulful doorway to deep connection and self-discovery."


We are excited to bring Soul Moves, a four-week wellness series exploring embodied movement and wellness through the lenses of Anishinaabe Maadiziiwin and contemporary yoga.  As advocates and service providers, we experience secondary traumatic stress.  In order to sustain ourselves in this work, it's important to find wellness practices that are useful and that we can incorporate into our daily routines.

Registration is required.  These workshops are designed to take place via Zoom. There will be four 90-minute sessions. To receive the full benefits of the program, attending all 4 sessions in person is strongly encouraged, though it is not required. Sessions will be recorded and available to participants for up to one week.
