Reflections from NSAC 2011!

-From Ashley Maier

Another year, another National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC)!  For my 3rd consecutive NSAC, I travelled to Baltimore, Charm City.  After 2 days at the national Rape Prevention and Education grantee meeting, the conference began on September 13th.  On that afternoon, I had the privilege of presenting a workshop with colleagues Bethany Pombar from VT and Jennifer Dills from MO, Building Capacity: A Multi-State Discussion.  Just where do schools fit in?

 

As is common at NSAC, there were many different topics and tracks from which to benefit.  As expected, I stayed mostly on the prevention track, which offered a diverse and comprehensive range of prevention topics (schools, bystander approaches, evidence, LGBTQIA strategies, norms change…).  When I deviated from that track, I observed SATF board member, Jessie Mindlin, present a fabulous and nuanced workshop on sexual assault protection orders.  Plenary speakers were energetic, funny, poignant, and powerful as well.

Beyond the wonderful workshops and speakers, what I found to be the most rewarding experience from this year’s NSAC was the comforting sense of community and the relationships built.  Conference organizers provided a number of opportunities to connect and communicate with attendees at the conference (online and in person).  Both facilitated sessions and networking/after hours events offered opportunities to connect, communicate, and recharge.  Attendees were also eager to connect and form relationships – organizing dinners together, attending baseball games, friending each other on Facebook, and the like.  Together, both NSAC organizers and attendees committed to creating connections.

Overall, what I found to be the most powerful component of this year’s conference was something I haven’t felt in the past.  This time around, there was a lot of attention and energy given to the idea that we are all working towards the same goal.  I heard and participated in countless conversations with the theme that essentially, we are all in this together.  One particular session’s facilitator pointed out that while a central tenet of our work is not to judge, we consistently judge each other within the movement.  To me, this comment struck at the core of NSAC 2011’s culture – one of community, sharing, relationships, and hope.   We are all in this together.  While we have differences, we also must acknowledge that our goals are the same.  We are all working towards creating a peaceful, just, healthy, and safe world.  This is what connects us.  Together, with understanding and respect, we will succeed.  Thank you, NSAC, for create the community needed to do so.

Don’t miss out on next year’s NSAC in Chicago! http://icasa.org/index.aspx?PageID=1031
