MCADSV Annual Conference: Here We Stand

Save the date for MCADSV’s Annual Conference in November. MCADSV will hold its 2012 conference November 7, 8 and 9 in Columbia, Mo. (Add a reminder to your Outlook calendar.) This year’s theme is “Here We Stand.” Members and non-members are invited to attend and stand together as a Coalition and a community.

More than 30 years after the first hotline rang in Missouri, we stand together as the movement to end sexual and domestic violence.

We stand with survivors like Barb, who writes:
“We are women who have endured one of the most degrading acts that can be perpetuated against us. Even worse, these acts are usually committed by our boyfriends, husbands, male family members, male friends or acquaintances. Yet, here we stand – our spirits intact.” – From Domitrz, M. (Ed.) (2005). Voices of courage: Inspiration from survivors of sexual assault. Greenfield, Wisconsin: Awareness Publications.

Debby Tucker, Executive Director of the National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence, will be the featured keynote speaker for the 2012 Annual Conference.

Check back in September to see the workshops and schedule of events for the conference.
