The 2020 National Conference on Safe Housing: Addressing the Housing Needs of Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault will be the first platform of its kind to examine, inform, and advocate at these intersections, with three broad themes: 1) Cross-sector Collaboration; 2) Collective Impact; and, 3) Innovative Practices. It will focus particularly on safe housing solutions and mobilizing for DV/SA survivors and communities of color and marginalized populations who face disparities in safe housing options. It will create an interdisciplinary space for up to 300 providers and advocates from across the country to convene for 2½ days of peer-to-peer dialogue, capacity and knowledge building, and organizing around safe housing for survivors. Researchers and policymakers will be invited to present ongoing areas of advocacy and evidence-based approaches that support community-level efforts. In addition, the forum will enable the creation of a national agenda for safe housing to improve systems and communities’ comprehensive, and equitable, responses to all survivors.
