The Creative Communication Network-sponsored Domestic Violence conference on Friday, October 20, was a great success.
Thanks to Springcreek Church for hosting this event, and for the vendors who shared their products and services with the attendees. The conference benefited Hope’s Door New Beginning Center in Garland. Here is a group of participants listening to John Sharp about Battering Intervention:
This is the incredible Wendy Sheriff, Detective for the City of Garland Police Department, who investigates Domestic Violence and Sex Crimes:
Most importantly, I want to thank the six speakers who each shared a perspective about “Are We Winning the War On Domestic Violence?‘ All of the attendees are more up-to-date, and better informed, as a result of spending time at the conference.
Save the date!
Plans are well underway for the 2nd annual Domestic Violence conference, scheduled for Purple Shirt Day, Friday, October 20th from 9:00 to 12:00, sponsored by my company, Creative Communication Network, and benefiting Hope’s Door and the New Beginning Center in Garland. The theme this year is: “Are We Winning the War on Domestic Violence?”
I will again serve as Host and Moderator. We will have five expert speakers representing different perspectives in society, to candidly answer what we have accomplished, where we have failed, and what we need to do differently in the future. We already have commitments from these four participants:
Christina Coultas – Texas Association Against Sexual Assualt
Tracy Grinstead-Everly – Texas Council on Family Violence
Sandra Bond Chapman, Ph.D. – University of Texas at Dallas
Wendy Sheriff – City of Garland Police Department
The liaison for us at Hope’s Door and the New Beginning Center is Ryan Thomas, the Community Education Director.
Mark your calendars! And, please stay tuned for more information about location, pricing, donations, and much more!
