Healing & Accountability Summit - June 21, 2019
The Healing and Accountability Summit will be a free, full day gathering to learn about various intervention and accountability models for those who commit domestic violence, as well as discussions of community and systems-level accountability.
Drawing on varied approaches nationwide, the summit will give those in New Orleans an opportunity to reflect on our current paradigm of intervention and how we could shift our approaches to create more safety and healing. It will be a chance to deepen our understanding of effective, survivor-centered intervention and how we measure ‘success’ in transforming the massive social and public health problem of domestic violence.
