40 Years Forward - A Human Trafficking and Intimate Partner Violence Conference for the whole community hosted by the Domestic Violence Intervention Program (DVIP) is a two-day conference held on Tuesday, April 28th and Wednesday, April 29th, September 8th, and 9th, 2020 at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.

The first day will open with a keynote speaker, Leslie King, who will introduce the day's topic from the survivors' perspective: human trafficking. Following the keynote address, conference attendees will break out into a world cafe break out session or q/a panel, allowing attendees to take a deep dive into the specific questions, thoughts, and concerns that Ms. King’s opening remarks brought up.

After lunch attendees are invited to attend one of three tracks that will address how human trafficking exists and relates to their specific communities, to intimate partner violence, and to law/criminal systems respectively.

Day Two continues with the 3 breakout sessions that will each explore topics - such as intersectionality, resource building, community engagement, policy needs, and creating response teams - all in relation to victim-survivors of intimate partner violence and human trafficking. The second day will close with keynote speaker Mildred Muhammad.

Along with the main conference, we will be hosting a series of optional networking events. Full conference details available at

Space is limited so register today!
