#BoldMoves from 2018 National Sexual Assault Coalition

The 2018 National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) “Bold Moves: Ending Sexual Violence in Once Generation”, held August 29-31st in Anaheim, California, was an incredible gathering of more than 1800 advocates, activists, and experts working to end violence.  This powerful gathering highlighted the voices of activists leading workshops including many Just Beginnings Collaborative fellows and Movement Makers including Beckie Masaki, Mily Treviño-Sauceda, Trina Green Brown, Farah Tanis, Kelly Miller, and Corrine Sanchez.  The plenary speakers (see recordings below) reflected activists who are making connections between social justice and ending sexual violence.

At this year’s conference, Ms. Magazine, media sponsor for #NSAC2018 helped to lift up and share out the thought leadership of conference speakers in advance of the conference through speaker/attendee-authored blogs and at the conference by providing a Livestream of plenary sessions and interviews conducted by their digital editor, Carmen Rios.
