​​Upcoming Trainings & Webinars

***Texas Advocacy Project is back to providing trainings both virtually and in person.***

7/8 | Summer Learning Session 1: Back to School: Everything You Need to Know About Title IX | 10 – 11:30am | REGISTER
In the current landscape of ever-evolving Title IX regulations, it is important to understand the basics of Title IX coverage. This training will cover the changes and give a solid foundational knowledge of Title IX‘s purpose and protections. Attendees will come away with the latest recommendations and best practices. This training is not only recommended for attorneys and advocates, but parents, school staff, and anyone interested in learning more.

7/15 | Summer Learning Session 2: Firearms & Family Violence: Connecting the Pathways to Prevent Violence | 10 – 11:30am | REGISTER
A critical look into the criminology of perpetrators of mass shootings is needed to prevent these crimes from happening. In this workshop, presenters will take a deep dive into a case study of recent mass shootings, identify red flags, and discuss current laws. Attendees will examine federal and state laws that may provide loopholes for these offenders to slip through the cracks and will learn how our communities can collaborate effectively to identify high-risk offenders, create firearm surrender protocols, and secure protections for survivors.

7/22 | Summer Learning Session 3: Advocating for Survivors of Violence: A Systems Approach | 10 – 11:30am | REGISTER
This training focuses on the complexity of the systems that survivors of family and sexual violence may encounter or from which they may seek assistance. Advocates will develop a deeper understanding of their roles in supporting survivors through trauma and carving a path for access to justice, with an approach grounded in empowerment-based advocacy. Legal options and remedies available through the various systems are discussed.
