Join Sexual Violence Justice Institute @MNCASA for the 2019 National Institute! 

Thank you for your interest in the 2019 National Institute for SART Leaders. The conference is currently full. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please email jengelking@mncasa.org. We will contact you if space becomes available.

The Institute is a 2 day program designed for coordinators, team leaders, and state and territorial level leaders who coordinate or support local teams responding to sexual violence. Find more information about the Institute here.

The Institute’s primary goal is to build the capacity of team leaders to design and facilitate effective team processes. The Institute will help you lead multidisciplinary teams as they design, implement, and evaluate their community’s response to sexual violence. A preview of this year's speakers and agenda can be found here.

In order to create a dynamic and meaningful environment, the National Institute is limited to 100 total participants and registration is limited to two people per team. The National Institute will most benefit team coordinators, team leadership, and state/territorial level positions that coordinate or support local teams responding to sexual violence. We strongly encourage the attendance of 2 team members per team. First priority is given to OVW funded Rural Grantees. OVW grantees are pre-approved to use OVW training dollars to attend the National Institute. We strongly encourage all interested grantees to connect with your OVW grant specialist prior to arranging travel for this event.

We will review your registration information to ensure compatibility with the conference and grant guidelines and follow-up with an update on your registration status.

You must make and pay for your travel and hotel arrangements AFTER you have received confirmation of registration. You are not registered until you receive a confirmation from SVJI.
