The most important thing is to dare.”

Every other year, the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (Action Alliance) hosts a Retreat for advocates working on the front lines of preventing and responding to sexual and domestic violence. The Retreat is a time for connection, reflection, healing, and learning.

We hope that you will join us at Radford University June 7-9 in gathering, networking, and building our collective capacity to prevent and respond to sexual and intimate partner violence.

You will make new friends and reconnect with old ones, and be able to spend time soaking up the sun, hearing stories and learning lessons, sharing your experiences, and growing as an advocate and as a leader in our movement.
