Biennially, the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (Action Alliance) hosts a Retreat for advocates working on the front lines of sexual and domestic violence services and prevention.This is a time for connection, reflection, healing, and learning.

Our next Biennial Retreat will be held at Emory and Henry College on June 5-7, 2019.

Because we want to encourage participants to nurture their practice, grow in their expertise, and for our community as a whole to rejuvenate ourselves in the work to eliminate violence and oppression, the theme for 2019 is Cultivate. When you submit your workshop proposal, we encourage you to keep this theme in mind and the definition of cultivate, which is to build, grow, and maintain.
