The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault is proud to host the Virtual National Sexual Assault Conference 2020: #BoldMoves. 

The National Sexual Assault Conference is a three-day conference providing advanced training opportunities for victim advocates and other professionals working to prevent sexual violence, provide critical intervention services and support those who have experienced sexual violence. With the issue of sexual assault garnering more attention than ever before in the last 40 years, this conference takes place at a time when it is necessary to highlight the solutions toward ending sexual violence.


In the past when held in-person, NSAC brought together over 1,800 allies, advocates, and changemakers throughout our country and beyond. Going virtual affords us a unique opportunity of broadening our reach and therefore casting a wider net to engage a greater number of people committed to the anti-sexual violence movement. This event will be free to all participants.

This year’s conference theme, “NSAC 2020: #BoldMoves”, we will be broadcasting three days worth of impactful presentations and discussions where leaders, such as yourself, will have the opportunity to engage on a meaningful topic related to our theme, #BoldMoves. We believe each of us has a role to play in preventing and ending violence and we know it will take small, yet impactful steps (Bold Moves) to get there.


  • Your registration keeps you apprised of new developments.
  • Based on your selections, we will send you instructions to attend the week prior to the conference. 
  • During the #BoldMoves Conference, all plenary and workshop sessions will be open on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • Should we reach capacity, plenaries will be streamed live during the conference.
  • Please be aware that workshops may fill up. Individual workshop recordings will be shared with all subscribers to that workshop at the end of the conference.
