Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women Program Manager and Policy Expert Rebekah Moses will lead this practical training focusing on how to develop skills for working with survivors of domestic violence. This training will discuss trauma's impact on survivors and their attorneys, the urgent need for attorneys willing to take domestic violence-related cases, and hands-on skills for working with domestic violence cases across a wide range of legal areas (family law, employment law, immigration law, etc.). 


For over a decade, Rebekah Moses has been active in human rights movements. She strives to practice liberation-based advocacy: an intersectional approach to gender-based violence, structural oppression and social change. She has experience in the performing arts for social justice, critical race, class, and gender approaches to political science, languages, housing, public benefits, domestic and sexual violence advocacy, and immigrants' rights. In 2012, Rebekah joined the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women as a Program Manager specializing in Policy.

Prior to joining MCBW, Rebekah worked at the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence, where she coordinated a statewide system advocacy collaboration. Rebekah has provided training and technical assistance for advocates and allied professionals on a myriad of topics. She was honored to work in Kansas City, KS as a bilingual community-based advocate at El Centro, Inc.'s ¡Sí, se puede! Rebekah is truly grateful to all of the survivors who have shared their expertise, intelligence, strength, resilience and hope.
