This conference is a reasonably priced training event open to advocates, affiliated professionals, and the public. It is a multi-day event provided in partnership with the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault that focuses on domestic violence, sexual assault, and intersecting issues through multiple workshops and keynote/plenary speakers. Presenters and speaker are recognized experts in their field on both a statewide and national level.

Regional Training

Violence Free Colorado has four geographically-based regions and provides two opportunities annually for Violence Free Colorado members to meet and receive training and or technical assistance from Violence Free Colorado staff. The meetings are centrally located within the regions, however; Region 4 entirely encompasses Colorado’s western slope and therefore holds two additional meetings; southwest and northwest.
