About the Summit

This unique 3-day training will focus on the various complex issues and concerns that come from the intersection of technology and domestic & sexual violence, stalking, and trafficking.

Covering a wide range of technology-related issues that will be helpful to anyone working with victims, sessions will be organized by advocacy, law enforcement, and legal professionals for participants to easily choose workshops most applicable to them.

Participants will be given tools and information to respond to technology abuse, to enhance services for survivors of violence, and to hold offenders accountable. In addition to incredible attendees from all over the United States and internationally, our excellent faculty includes the Safety Net Team; survivors; national experts on technology, confidentiality, and privacy’ technology developers and representatives from technology companies; and leaders in law enforcement, domestic violence, and the legal field.

Feedback from last year's participants:

  • Topics that were addressed were very informative, up to date, and thought provoking. The sessions helped me realize ways in which technology is abused that I was not aware of before.”
  • I thought this was a wonderful conference. It was great to hear from Google, Verizon, Facebook, and FireFox but to also hear from those in the legal profession.”
  • I really enjoyed the variety of key note speakers, workshops, panel discussions and tech demonstrations. I loved that many of the technology company representatives present were asking questions of advocates about how the companies could most effectively create change.
  • The overall tone of the event allowed for participants of different backgrounds, knowledge and experience levels to participate equally. The topics were exceptional—I have never attended any conference where there weren’t at least a couple of duds and this wasn't the case.
