This online Forum will be on the topic of “Intro to the YWCA and Sexual Violence”, as described below:
In this brief talk, we will learn about the services YWCA has to offer to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and human trafficking. We will introduce the different types of violence, how to identify warning signs, and how to support someone who may be experiencing violence. After the presentation, we will have a Q&A discussion with the YWCA.
Our speaker, Megan Schnabel (she/her), has been working with the YWCA Silicon Valley since 2018 in crisis intervention, advocacy, counseling, and prevention education. She also has experiencing working with foster youth, case management, LGBTQ+ communities, and suicide prevention. Megan grew up in San Jose, and received her BA in Psychology at UC Santa Cruz. She is currently the Community Outreach and Engagement Coordinator at the YWCA, working with communities all across Santa Clara County to provide awareness and prevention education, connect folks to services, and change the culture around gender based violence.
