The PPC is proud to co-sponsor this two day conference.

40 Years Forward – A Human Trafficking and Intimate Partner Violence Conference hosted by the Domestic Violence Intervention Program (DVIP) is a two-day conference held on Tuesday, April 28th and Wednesday, April 29th, 2020 at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.

The first day will open with keynote speaker, Timea Nagy, who will introduce the day’s topic from the survivors’ perspective: human trafficking. Following the Keynote address conference attendees will break out into a world cafe break out session, allowing attendees to take a deep dive into the specific questions, thoughts, and concerns that Tamia Nagy’s opening remarks brought up.

After lunch attendees are invited to attend one of three tracks that will address how human trafficking exists and relates to their specific communities, to intimate partner violence, and to law/criminal systems respectively.

On the second day, we will continue with the 3 breakout sessions that will each explore topics – such as intersectionality, resource building, community engagement, creating response teams – and their relationship to intimate partner violence. The second day will close with keynote speaker Mildred Muhammad.

Along with the main conference, we will be hosting a series of optional networking events. We hope you can join us! Please visit the full conference site here.
