Speakers Bureau

The lack of information for victims, survivors and their family has allowed the epidemic of domestic violence to soar. Through our Speakers Bureau, presenters and facilitators can provide much needed information and education concerning the issues of domestic/family and intimate partner violence. The staff speaks at multiple business entities, schools (high school and colleges), block clubs, youth groups, churches, and community outreach events. It is a known fact that when one knows better, they do better.
