CAP Educational Webinars

Adapting during a time of increased community needs

CAP quickly adapted its programs to support survivors during the pandemic, to create strategies to address the recent changes in Title IX regulations, and to support the BIPOC community at OHSU. The CAP Advocacy Conference, originally scheduled for May 2020, was transformed into an educational webinar series for: healthcare providers; medical students; community-based, campus, and legal advocates; Title IX coordinators; and others working with or supporting survivors of sexual harassment, stalking, sexual violence or intimate-partner violence.
