Keynote Speakers

Jennie Willoughby will be a keynote speaker of Voices Rising, NCADV’s 17th biennial national domestic violence conference this September. Ms. Willoughby is a domestic violence survivor and has been outspoken about her abuser, Rob Porter, who until February was employed at the White House and protected by high-ranking officials who knew about Porter’s abuse of Willoughby and his other ex-wife, Colbie Holderness. Ms. Willoughby will speak to attendees in Providence on September 24th about her experiences as a survivor and will also be addressing how abusive men in power often use that power to continue controlling their victim(s).
