Spotlight Performances

Spotlight performances at the Conference on Crimes Against Women (CCAW).
CCAW is a 3 1/2 day national training conference delivering best practices regarding the identification, investigation, and prosecution of all violent crimes against women.

The conference is conducted for the sole purpose of providing training to only those people employed by governmental or non-profit agencies in the fields of law enforcement, prosecution, social work, victim's advocacy, therapy, probation/parole, campus safety, and medicine, who work directly with victims of crime.

Since its founding in 1985, Genesis Women's Shelter & Support has served more than 15,000 women and children at no cost to the client. Genesis hopes that the Eleventh Annual Conference on Crimes Against Women will inspire others to take a stand against the worldwide epidemic of violence against women.
