Upcoming Trainings/Webinars

Overwhelmed by Objectives and Outcomes? Lost in Logic Models? Confused about Collecting Data?

If you're looking to put a violence/injury prevention program into place, or revitalize an existing one, you belong at the Injury-Free Louisiana Academy (IFLA!) Teams of 2-6 people, either from the same agency or partners in prevention, come together for two two-day sessions to learn about public health and program planning from the ground up. Through hands-on workshops and discussions, teams collaborate to use data to identify focus audiences, risk/protective factors, and programs that address those factors; define objectives; strengthen partnerships; and implement and evaluate programs.

When: July 11-12, 2024 and August 8-9, 2024

Where: Baton Rouge, LA

Who: We welcome teams from sexual assault centers, domestic violence programs, child maltreatment prevention, drug and alcohol treatment programs, suicide prevention organizations, mental healthcare providers, medical professionals, and other agencies.

IFLA is co-sponsored by LaFASA, LCADV, the Haven, and the Office of Public Health-Bureau of Family Health. Learn more and apply here!

"IFLA was a great way to network and come together with others in the field. From breaking the ice to final presentations, time was well spent and interesting. I really enjoyed being there. It was fun and educational. I look forward to future conferences."

LaFASA Book Club

Discussion of the book "Grabbed."

This event can be found on our YouTube page.

The editors of this gender-inclusive anthology asked writers and poets to contribute pieces about what being “grabbed” means to each of them. The result is a collection of emotional works in prose and poetry addressing a range of injustices including all forms of sexual misconduct—from an unwanted caress to rape. The writers represented here, some very well known, such as Rita Dove, Jericho Brown, Eileen Myles, Ana Menendez, and Sapphire, as well as some newer voices not yet fully discovered, have mined their collective experiences to reveal their most vulnerable moments, and in some cases, to narrate moments that they have had previously been unwilling or unable to speak of. What results is a collection of emotional, hard-hitting pieces that speak to the aftermath of violation—whether mental, emotional, or physical.
