Making a Difference Project (Phase I)
EVAWI was awarded this grant to sponsor a national conference in order to promote an integrated community response to sexual violence.  Conference scholarships were awarded to applicant teams from eight U.S. communities to participate in the Making a Difference (MAD) Project, with each community team including eight professionals who respond to the needs of sexual assault victims.  Within each community team, these professionals represented the fields of: law enforcement, prosecution, rape crisis advocacy, and other sexual assault services.  The core vision of the conference was to challenge the legal process to more effectively prosecute sex offenders.  Participants recognized that this requires redefining the way that sexual assaults are conceptualized within the criminal justice system.  The goal of the conference was not only to make a difference in public policy but also to create a movement for social change.  The original conference took place on October 26-29, 2004.
