NCVAN Announces Part II of the

“September Sustainability Series”:

“We Will Survive!: Building Resiliency and Sustainable Dynamics in Your Organization”

September 25th – 26th

Downtown Wilmington, NC 



This interactive workshop will support organizations to shift away from locking into a crisis-based, scarcity mindset and systemic “fault,” towards discovering protective factors in healing our work culture from within. Programs will be guided in ways to integrate innovative perspectives on individual and collective trauma and care towards organizational wholeness and wellbeing. Facilitators Angelica Reza Wind of Our Voice and Saira Estrada of NCVAN will offer sessions in both English and Spanish.

NCVAN is encouraged by the passing of the Victims’ Rights Amendment on November 6, 2018.  Now the work begins.  NCVAN will work closely with policy makers and state legislators on enabling legislation.  We acknowledge there will be challenges ahead but remain convinced that the victims’ rights amendment, often referred to as Marsy’s Law, will ultimately ensure victims are acknowledged and their voices are heard during the criminal justice process.
