Keynote Speakers

Monday, September 24th

JENNIE WILLOUGHBY 
"And So I Stayed: Finding Peace and Healing Beyond Abuse"

Join writer and speaker, Jennie Willoughby, in an intimate discussion of domestic violence and recovery. She will recount her experiences of the very public unveiling of the emotional and physical abuse she suffered during her marriage* as well as discuss her pathway to healing. The remarks will take place with respect to the greater implications of abuse by those in positions of power and the added barriers this creates to coming forward and seeking help. *Jennie was married to Former White House Staff Secretary, Rob Porter, from 2009-2013.

Tuesday, September 25th

LYNN ROSENTHAL
"Voices Rising! Advocacy, Activism and Action"

As advocates, we may not organically think of ourselves as activists nor do we necessarily feel our experience and day-to-day interactions with victims and survivors fall under that umbrella. But our voices, our experiences, our perspectives and the sheer wealth of knowledge we can offer to shift the paradigm around how our society views and responds to domestic violence is critical. If you are an advocate you ARE an activist and victims and survivors need you now more than ever.
