Sexual Assault Coordinator | Culturally Specific Services Program
The Program Coordinator will manage training and technical assistance designed for programs serving survivors of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The Program Coordinator will be mainly responsible for coordinating training and technical assistance on: (a) Educating advocates about sexual assault and stalking trends and types affecting APIs; (b) Increasing the awareness of API advocates about how cultural norms and advocate discomfort can be barriers to disclosure; and (c) Building the capacity of more DV programs to integrate sexual assault and stalking services.
The Program Coordinator will also be responsible for providing TA&T on API-specific sexual assault and stalking, other topics as needed; and working with OVW and the comprehensive TA provider; and working closely with the Project Specialist II. Our preference is for this position is to be based in our Oakland office.

This report charts TMWF’s process of becoming a trauma-informed agency which included learning about types of trauma and trauma-informed care, assessing existing culturally-sensitive practices that enhanced trauma-informed care and identifying ones that need to be added, training staff, and working with researchers to document and build a body of evidence-based practice — all the while staying survivor-centered.
Happy Spring, and happy Year of the Rat! The first of the animals in the Chinese lunar horoscope, the rat heralds a year of new beginnings and creative energy. We are already experiencing both as we prepare for the leadership transition ahead and imagine new undertakings based on the needs of advocates in the field and all the networks we serve.
