SART Call for Proposals

Cuyahoga County SART Conference Presenter Application

You are invited to submit a proposal to present a plenary or workshop session at the 2023 Virtual Cuyahoga County Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Conference. The conference will be held Friday, November 17, 2023 on Zoom.

This year’s focus will be on supporting those impacted by sextortion.

Topics of special interest include:

  • How to identify sextortion
  • Talking with youth about sextortion
  • Acute responses to sextortion (in advocacy, health care, law enforcement)
  • Prosecution of cases involving sextortion
  • Internet safety as a method to combat sextortion

The target audiences are medical professionals, law enforcement, prosecution,  K-12 schools, and other survivor-serving organizations.

Submissions are closed. Thank you!
