Institute for Coordinated Community Response


Presented in partnership with

Monday, Oct. 4 – Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021

8:30 AM – 5:15 PM CST


Coordinated Community Responses (CCRs) have been recognized as a best practice in reducing domestic violence since the Violence Against Women Act was enacted over 20 years ago and can be particularly effective in rural communities, where close-knit relationships and highly engaged community members provide an ideal jumping off point for collaborative efforts. However, with limited resources that must stretch further than their urban counterparts’, it can often be a struggle to implement and sustain this approach.

Recognizing this, ICCR and the Conference on Crimes Against Women are coming together to provide critical training and resources for implementing collaborative, systemic responses to domestic violence in rural communities nationwide.


Workshop Format

All workshops will be virtual, 90 minutes, and presented live. Workshops will also be recorded and available for on-demand viewing for 60 days after.

Workshops will be presented in plenary and breakout format.
