A special domestic abuse awareness event dedicated to facilitating activism and helping victims become survivors. The conference will include testimonies from actual survivors of domestic abuse, a self-defense class, and speakers/leaders from the local community on what we can do to "take the lid off the silence" of abuse. Doors open at 8:30am.
Domestic violence affects everyone–women, children and men–and everyone must be part of the solution. On this annual, free 45-minute call, several national organizations, governmental agencies, local domestic violence programs, advocates, allies, survivors and their family and friends gather together to connect and refocus our efforts to end domestic violence. Please dial (877) 594–8353 and use the passcode 751-52-623# to join this call.
