    IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Pictured is Wanda Swan in front of a gray background. Wanda is a Black woman with curly, shoulder length hair. Wanda wears gold hoop earrings and a bright fuchsia blouse. Wanda looks at the camera and smiles her distinct gap-toothed smile.

    An advocate, prevention strategist, scholar-practitioner, and influencer, Wanda Swan is a nationally-awarded thought leader in survivor advocacy, anti-oppression work, restorative justice, and violence prevention. She has been deeply embedded within the anti-violence movement as a professional practitioner for over 15 years and her work has spanned across higher education, corporate and state governmental agencies, and nonprofit organizations. As both a curator and co-conspirator of systems and research that informs her field of practice, Wanda currently holds co-founder and leadership roles in professional organizations like Campus Advocacy and Prevention Professionals Association (CAPPA) and The Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention Education and Response Knowledge Community (NASPA). She is also a national technical assistance provider and consultant who has trained anti-violence professionals on the benefits of adopting the Anti-Oppressive Advocacy ™ framework to better support how historically-marginalized survivors of violence receive care. Wanda currently serves as Founder and Executive Director of The Swan Center for Advocacy & Research, a Georgia-based 501(c)(3) that prioritizes Black and/or African-American survivors of violence. She is also a Research Fellow for the University of New Hampshire's Prevention Innovations Research Center (PIRC) as well as an anti-oppression coach with Start By Talking, LLC., a business she founded and co-owns. In this role she supports nonprofit organizations, corporations, and executive leaders who are interested in interrogating their personal and professional relationships with anti-Blackness and White Supremacy.

    MORNING WORKSHOP:
    Practicing Liberation: Leadership After the Pandemic 

    After a year of collective global trauma and a "this is not business as usual anymore" mantra, many of us are seeking options and answers for the next right step for their organization's success. This 90-minute workshop explores these hard questions of accountability and offers guidance through the Anti-Oppressive Advocacy ™ framework and a larger reimagining of how to walk the talk of liberation within and outside of your respective spaces. Originally developed as a framework that supports anti-violence and other service professionals with interrogating their relationship with anti-Blackness and White Supremacy, Anti-Oppressive Advocacy ™ is a return to the Black feminist abolitionist origins (and Black founders) of our field and serves as a mechanism to plug the gaps existing within this current iteration off service provision, prevention, and overall systems management. Attendees will learn of (or become re-acquainted with) tenets and tools of the framework and gain insight in how to transform this foundational philosophy into the Practice Liberation praxis.

    With more than 20 years in the Non-Profit sector, Zoe is Founder & CEO of Soul Requirements a healing centered consulting business merging art and holistic healing. Zoe’s healing techniques were evaluated by Georgetown University and can be found in Traumatology, 23(2), 143-152.

    Afternoon Workshop:
    Surviving The Non-Profit Industrial Complex 

    After 20 years in the domestic violence movement, Zoe flowers knows first-hand about the toll our work can have on our bodies, minds and spirits (Especially those of us with histories of trauma). And the current climate has exacerbated the stress many of us have overlooked for years. Advocates, and program directors alike are struggling to stay connected while also keeping programs, staff, and their families healthy. This workshop will utilize intentional breathing, visualization, and other modalities to assist senior executives, mid-level managers, and program staff with techniques to reduce stress and promote a renewed sense of creativity and resilience. *Trauma informed resources for creating personal self-care plans will be provided at the end of the session.

    MORNING WORKSHOP:
    Practicing Liberation: No More Self-Sacrifice 

    I replied, "Hope is a privilege" on a Zoom call some months back in response to a White male colleague, also in the anti-violence movement, who said he uses hope to fuel passion and action and as a mechanism to stay on track as the world burns around us.  

    When I got into the anti-violence movement as an advocate and prevention strategist, there was an unwritten rule that I will be a "lifer" who commits myself to this work and building a world I will never see. It wasn't until 15 years later, until this conversation with this colleague of privilege about sacrifice that I realized I had been hustled. Big time. 

    Expecting professionals in the trenches of this work to live by that motto while more privileged voices are given the time to wait and hope for the better days ahead is a reiteration of the capitalist violent system we are all committed to unraveling. It also lends an indication of who will ultimately be left behind. 

    So how did we end up here? How did we end up being okay with people sacrificing themselves for the greater good? 

    In this Practice Liberation session for direct service providers, Wanda will dive into this rhetoric and its connections to the larger deficits of the current iteration of the anti-violence movement. We will then pave the road to a new world that includes all of us and begin the work of practicing liberation in real time. Only in actively practicing liberation in the now can we expect to utilize it in the future.

    Afternoon Workshop:
    Shaking the Table: Supporting Equitable Service Provision  

    This training will provide program leaders with a deeper dive into inequitable service provision and how it shows up in programs, negatively impacts all staff, and interrupts safety and security for survivors of color and other marginalized communities. Participants will also be provided with culturally relevant approaches and strategies that support racial equity in hiring policies, programs, and partnerships.
