The Alliance team (Board Members and Staff) held its first ever Strategic Planning Workshop facilitated by PRIME Consultants Group through Mrs. Luana Yoshikawa-Scanlan, and Va’a Tofaeono.
For our data we used gaps assessments produced by the Alliance Team, and evaluation provided by PRIME Consultants to determine our Strategic Goals and Objectives. It was important we ensured these goals ensure align with our vision and mission statement.
We focused on Steps, Actions, Goals to promote 1) Victim safety, 2) Perpetrator Accountability, for Domestic Violence. We identified ways to ensure 3) Victims of Sexual Assault Healing 4) Community Accountability—and ensuring for DVSA there is a component for 5) Prevention.
A great way to focus on the value of the work as we support our vision: “An American Samoa where individuals love free of violence with equality, dignity, and respect.”
The work continues over the next 90 days as we develop our objectives. Our goal is to have a completed draft by October 1, 2019.
