About this conference

In our increasingly digital world, online sexual violence has many impacts. This online conference looks at the experiences of online sexual violence survivors and considers strategies for supporting survivors by Sexual Assault Centres, community organizations, and other allies.

Join us for this important two-part conversation:

On May 26th, 2021, join us for a panel discussion on what a community-based response to online sexual violence can look like. The discussion will include panelists from Ontario Sexual Assault Centres and other community organizations who work with survivors of online sexual violence.

On May 27th, 2021 join us for a webinar on digital safety from an expert in the field of online safety. Learn to identify and minimize risks from the perspective of survivors living within a digital environment and use a trauma-informed perspective in online sexual violence prevention strategies.  

This online conference is for: sexual assault centres, community-based workers, sexual violence and gender-based violence advocates, school-based professionals, sexual violence survivors and allies, youth workers, shelter staff and volunteers.
