On September 23 the No More campaign hit the airwaves with several new public service announcements. Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order SVU actress and one of the campaign founders) spent an hour on Katie Couric’s talk show where she opened up about family, career and her personal crusade to end domestic violence and sexual assault.
ICADV will host our 31st Annual Fall Conference on October 29 & 30, 2013 at the Indianapolis Marriott East Hotel & Conference Center. We are excited to welcome Lisa Gilmore, nationally recognized activist and speaker, as our keynote speaker. Ms. Gilmore’s address will focus on the idea of balancing and reconnecting our commitments and responsibilities as advocates with our passion and dedication to the ideal of ending intimate partner violence. Ms. Gilmore will also present three workshops during the conference addressing deepening our commitment to the greater anti-violence movement, as well improving services to members of the LGBTQI community.
The conference agenda is extended this year, allowing us to present more workshops than ever before, a total of 32.
This year’s conference theme, Take it personally; Serving all Survivors, centers around the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act of 2013 and all of the new provisions it brings with it. We have workshops focused on many marginalized communities, including LGBTQ, immigrants/refugees, and Native Americans. And, we are examining services across the spectrum from prevention to intervention. This will truly be two very educational days.
