The Intersectionality of Home

How Environment Informs Domestic Violence

Branches Domestic Violence Shelter and Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center are so excited to be teaming up for this special workshop that takes a look at the intersection of domestic violence and our two unique environments. Situated directly across the state of WV from each other, border to border, these two organizations provide life-saving advocacy for victims of domestic violence.

This workshop will highlight how advocacy must consider all aspects of a persons experience--including where they live (and it might surprise you how different that can be even right here in West Virginia!) and what support network they come from.

Advocacy at the Intersections of Domestic Violence & Substance Use Disorder

Join us in partnership with the Wayne County Prevention Coalition as Branches advocates provide this advocacy training on how to best support and advocate for domestic violence victims that may be also experiencing substance use disorder.

Men & Domestic Violence

Though domestic violence disproportionately affects women, we know that DV is not just a “women’s issue”. Join us for this virtual information session & community expert panel as we explore how men experience, report, & respond to DV in our community. We'll also be talking about how men can best be allies in responding to DV as a whole.

Advocates, this training is West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence provided and qualifies as 1.5 DVAC certification hours in Survivor Centered Intervention Strategies.
