Think Tank

Every year the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence hosts an annual Think Tank where new and returning members alike come together to discuss the goals, methods, and plans of NPEIV in the year to come. Action Team co-chairs will lead think tanks and group discussions that will be shared at the end of the day with the entire Partnership. The Think Tank is an excellent opportunity to network with professionals from multiple disciplines that are dedicated to helping bring about the end to interpersonal violence.
