Advanced Advocate Training: male allyship, oppression, and a more in-depth look at providing survivor-centered services.

AUDIENCE: KCSDV member program advocates only.

Co-Sponsored by:

Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence and Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence

When individuals hear the phrase "violence against women" they often do not consider the role of men as providers of sexual or domestic violence services. Historically, the movement to end violence against women has been women-led. We know that our movement involves more than just women.

Public health research has shown us that social movements should be inclusive of all members of society. To grow as a social movement, it is critical that we incorporate more male staff members and volunteers as service providers, and that we provide inclusive services for male survivors. This training will help participants find consensus around gender dynamics in our organizations and in our movement to end rape and abuse.

This training will include:

  • Identifying the skills and philosophy to be a successful male ally in domestic and sexual violence victim advocacy;
  • Exploring the impact of male privilege when working in a primarily women-led movement;
  • Strategizing appropriate ways to incorporate more men as staff, board members, volunteers, community leaders and as survivors seeking services;
  • Considering the dynamics of domestic violence in same sex/same gender relationships;
  • Integrating inclusive services for transgender individuals; and
  • Establishing hospital advocacy for male and LGBTQ survivors
