Leave No Victim Behind Conference
September 5th-7th, 2018
Leave No Victim Behind III
Best Practices for Mass Violence Response and Tribal Communities
University of Oregon in Eugene
Chief Matthew Carmichael of the University of Oregon Police Department, the California Victim Compensation Board and the Oregon Department of Justice are once again presenting a conference on mass violence response and effective partnerships between law enforcement and victim services to assist victims of crime. The conference will take place in the great Pacific Northwest from September 5-7, 2018 at the University of Oregon in Eugene. This year, our conference will be held in a larger venue and will include better deals on accommodations.
This year’s national conference will follow up on last year’s sold out conference theme of Best Practices for Mass Violence Response. We plan to include detailed presentations regarding some of the more recent mass violence incidents including the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert shooting in Las Vegas, the First Baptist Church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas and the shooting at the Pathway Home, the Veteran’s Home in Yountville, California. The conference agenda will also devote time to learning about effective community partnerships that provide unique services to victims of crime including building partnerships with the Sikh community and working with the homeless population. Our opening keynote speaker is Samantha Fuentes, a shooting survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
