Thank you for your outstanding presentation to the Military Families Learning Network. Our members were empowered by learning the signs of domestic violence in the workplace, valuable resources for human resources managers and colleagues to support victims suffering from abuse, and the model of Second Chance Employment Services to provide long-term meaningful employment as a means for victims to permanently break free from abuse.

Dr. Ludy Green’s keynote presentation was the highpoint for our conference. Her own story of growing up in domestic violence, breaking free, starting Second Chance Employment Services, and successfully lobbying the US Congress to pass a key provision of the Violence Against Women (VAWA) captivated the audience from start to finish!
