Description

General Registration Now Open!

The New York State Office of Victim Services (OVS)
is pleased to welcome registration for the "Seeking Solutions: Starting the Conversation about Male Sexual Assault" on April 17, 2018 at The Desmond Hotel in Albany, NY.

Summit Background
Studies estimate that as many as 25 percent of American men have suffered sexual abuse in their lives. Most victims suffer trauma without reporting the abuse or obtaining help to heal from it. This event will shed light on the complex nature of male sexual abuse, discuss ways to reduce the stigma of reporting and work through ways to improve access to help for victims.

The summit will also feature:

  • Keynote presentation by New York Times best selling author and award-winning Op-Ed columnist Charles M. Blow
  • A panel of male survivors of sexual assault
  • A solutions-focused round table of experts in the fields of victim advocacy, law enforcement, psychology, media and more
  • A networking reception
