“ISSAVWC 2013”

28 Mar



Dear Colleague,

You are welcome to participate in the coming international summit against sexual assault, violence on women and children (ISSAVWC). The international summit will commence from 21st to 24th May at the San Diego Convention Center 111 W Harbor Dr San Diego, CA 92101 United States and 27th to 30th May 2013 at the Gaston Berger University Conference Hall in St Louis Senegal. The summit is been organized and sponsored by the International women children welfare organization and other benevolent organizations worldwide.

Sexual violence exists in every community. This summit is committed to increasing awareness about sexual violence and educating its members about the signs, effects and consequences of sexual abuse, assault and harassment. Whether through child sexual abuse awareness and prevention programs, presentations to community groups or training for service providers in community agencies, the Sexual Assault Program continues to strengthen society’s response to sexual violence by educating and training one person at a time.
All victims/survivors, both male and female, can access free, confidential sexual assault services whether the assault took place recently, years ago, or during childhood.

Our position on sexual assault:
• Sexual assault is a violation of human rights and is a crime against the individual and the community. It is not solely an individual or private problem.
• Sexual assault is both a consequence and reinforcer of the power disparity between men and women. It is a violent act of power which in the main, is carried out by men against women and children.
• Sexual assault has far reaching emotional, social, legal, health and political consequences.
• The prevention and elimination of sexual assault is the responsibility of the whole community.

The summit theme is “Protecting Woman Children in a Changing World” and the sub-themes are:
• Prevention of Abuse and Sexual Assault through early and sustained involvement
• Interventions and programmes for woman and children and families experiencing adversity
• Addressing children’s rights and participation
• Reforms in child protection and welfare policy
• Children in out of home care
• Building the evidence base
• Contemporary issues

The trauma impact on children of all ages from preschoolers to adolescents

Most Canadian citizens and many citizens from Visa Waiver Program countries can come to the U.S. without a visa if they meet certain requirements. Visa waiver travelers from ALL 27 Visa Waiver Program countries must present a machine-readable passport at the U.S. port of entry to enter the U.S. without a visa, otherwise a U.S. visa is required. See important information about the 10/26/05 digital photograph and 10/26/06 e-passport requirements for VWP travelers. Other foreign citizens will need a non-immigrant visa.

Non-immigrant visas are for international travelers (citizens of other countries) coming to the U.S. temporarily. This visa allows you to travel to a U.S. port-of-entry (airport, for example) and request permission of the Department of Homeland Security immigration inspector to enter the U.S. Please note: a visa does not guarantee entry into the U.S. International travelers come to the U.S. for a wide variety of reasons, including tourism, business, medical treatment, and certain types of temporary work. The type of visa needed is defined by immigration law, and relates to the principal purpose of your travel. For an overview of the types of non-immigrant visas available under immigration law. Most attendees will be using the B-1 Visa for temporary visitor for business.

Due to security concerns, U.S. visa applications are subject to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past. For many applicants, a personal interview is required as a standard part of visa processing.
