NCADV Announces Details of 2020 National Domestic Violence Conference

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) announces its next national conference on domestic violence will be held in St. Louis, Missouri between October 25th and 28th, during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The announcement occurred following Voices in Action, the organization’s 18th national conference on domestic violence in Washington, D.C.

 

“This national conference on domestic violence has a rich history of bringing advocates and other service providers together to learn about emerging issues, learn from each other and allow the space to address how we assist survivors and hold those who abuse accountable.  We are so proud to offer that space and appreciate the support of others to ensure this happens.” said Ruth M. Glenn, NCADV President/CEO.

 

Highlights from the Voices in Action conference included …

  • A press event highlighting the coinciding 25th anniversaries of NCADV’s Remember My Name project and the signing of the Violence Against Women Act
