Community Ally Training
DeafHope has moved away from providing the full certification trainings for domestic and sexual violence. The State of California certification trainings are 40 hours for domestic violence and 60 hours for sexual violence. We believe that healing and safety comes from our own communities. We believe that community members need access to the vital information necessary to support all survivors. Advocates cannot do it alone. So we have create a unique two-day training for community members to learn about the dynamics of violence, how to reduce victim-blaming attitudes and practice ways to be supportive to survivors. These trainings are offered several times throughout the year and are free of charge. If you are interested in participating in a training, watch our website and social media where we announce the dates. We understand that in person trainings are not accessible for everyone, so we are in the process of making the information provided in the trainings available online.
