NSAC 2022

The National Sexual Assault Conference®® (NSAC) is an annual conference that brings together more than 1,500 people to share information, advance learning opportunities, and support professional growth to those who work to address the needs of survivors of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse, to raise awareness about these issues, and to prevent them from happening.

With the issue of sexual assault garnering more attention than ever before in the last 40 years, this conference takes place at a time when it is necessary to highlight the solutions toward ending sexual violence.

This year’s conference, through the theme, “Embracing Intersectionality,” seeks to uplift the role we all have in creating safe and equitable communities. Building on the work of Kimberlé Crenshaw, PCAR considers racial justice critical to the movement to address and end sexual violence. We will only be successful in ending sexual violence when we examine and dismantle all forms of oppression.

Our 3-day, all virtual event is sure to be a great way to join with peers and colleagues in learning about our roles as advocates and influencers in our communities. With 7 workshop sessions led by various social justice experts and leaders, several exhibits to explore, and opportunities for networking, this will certainly be a conference you don’t want to miss. Furthermore, as a benefit to signing up as a participant for NSAC 2022, you will also have access to the recorded sessions!

La Conferencia Nacional de Agresión Sexual (NSAC) es una conferencia anual que reúne a más de 1,500 personas para compartir información, promover oportunidades de aprendizaje y apoyar el crecimiento profesional de quienes trabajan para abordar las necesidades de los sobrevivientes de acoso, agresión y abuso sexual, crear concienciación sobre estos problemas y evitar que sucedan. Esta conferencia tiene lugar en un momento en el que el tema de las agresiones sexuales está captando más atención que nunca en los últimos 40 años, y es necesario resaltar las soluciones para poner fin a la violencia sexual.

La conferencia de este año, a través del tema “Abrazar la interseccionalidad”, busca elevar el papel que todos desempeñamos para crear comunidades seguras e igualitarias. A partir del trabajo de Kimberl é Crenshaw, la PCAR considera que la justicia racial es crucial para que el movimiento aborde y ponga fin a la violencia sexual. El éxito en la erradicación de la violencia sexual solo se logrará si examinamos y desmantelamos todas las formas de opresión.

Nuestro evento virtual de 3 días de duración sin duda será una excelente manera de unirse a compañeros y colegas para aprender sobre nuestras funciones como defensores e influenciadores en nuestras comunidades. No querrá perderse la conferencia que contará con 7 talleres a cargo de varios expertos y líderes en justicia social, varias exposiciones para explorar y oportunidades para generar contactos. Además, como beneficio de inscribirse como participante de la NSAC 2022, ¡también tendrá acceso a las sesiones grabadas!

Land acknowledgment 

PCAR also would like to acknowledge the land on which our building sits as the traditional territory of the Susquehannock Tribe.

Regardless of where you are in the world, we all sit on indigenous lands. We offer renewed respect to the Indigenous people

who came before us, and to those with whom we continue to live and work. We meet on a virtual platform, using technology

not available in many Indigenous communities. This technology leaves a significant carbon footprint, and we mourn the

disproportionate harm affecting Indigenous people as a result of climate change.

Join us in recognizing the harms and mistakes of the past and considering how we can each, in our own way, try to move forward

in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
