Join us for these webinars in April + A training opportunity from D2l
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a great opportunity to learn more about issues that affect children and what you can do to not only help prevent future cases of child abuse but also support survivors of abuse in all its forms.
This year’s Child Abuse Prevention Month is a little different thanks to COVID-19. But just because we’re practicing social distancing doesn’t mean that we can’t create opportunities to learn more new strategies to help ourselves or find new ways to get involved and help prevent future cases of abuse.
So for April 2020 we are providing you with two different webinars, one geared towards equipping yourselves with the tools and resources you need to reduce anxiety and stay effective in times of insecurity, and one focused on legislative efforts in 2020 and the ways that you can help make a difference from the comfort of your own home.
These webinars are free and open to all, but please keep in mind that registration is limited to the first 100 people, so register for these webinars today using the links in the description below!

Additionally, we are excited to share this announcement from our friends at Darkness To Light, one of the premier sexual abuse prevention organizations in the country. D2L is offering the below training for free and we think this could be a great opportunity for the SNAP network of advocates. Here are the details:
Protecting Children During a Crisis has been designed by D2L and will help people determine potential changes that could disrupt your existing daily life, identify some possible scenarios that could require you to modify your existing prevention strategies, and develop personalized strategies to use when potential crisis situations become a reality.
