This week was the National YWCA Week Without Violence that recognized the committment of our programs to end violence and educate the public about different types of community violence. I participated as a speaker and panel discussion with my colleagues. This week was also the Missouri Coalition against Domestic and Sexual Violence Annual conference wher I also presented a workshop on "What Sexual Trauma Survivors Wish You Knew." Between the two events I hadthe privilege of meeting many survivors and committed professionals who are working to end sexual a use and revuse the traumatic impact on survivors. I am honored to be among so many unsung heroes as they work for social change.
