3rd Annual Giving Voice Conference from EmpowerSurvivors 2018

November 3, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm CDT


[ezcol_1third][/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end]

This is a special day that brings together survivors of childhood sexual abuse nationwide under one roof with community members to give voice to this epidemic that affects 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys by the age of 18.

Together we can celebrate how far we have come, educate ourselves and community on the issues that accompany abuse, find resources, gather support and build our survivor family that believes no child should be abused, molested and/or raped.

Together we can make change, grow, feel supported, be empowered and give voice to this silent epidemic.




The day’s event will include survivor stories, information on healing from childhood sexual abuse, survivors Q and A panel, vendors and more!

Survivors and Communities Joining Together As One


Featured Speakers:

Stacy Coulter -Mother, Advocate, and Author of  Blindfolds and Pitchforks, Don’t Be A Child Molester’s Flying Monkey

“When children report sexual abuse, they are often victimized again by supporters of the child molester. Wearing their blindfolds to avoid seeing the truth and wielding their pitchforks, they swoop in like flying monkeys, and defend the indefensible, treating the offender like a victim. They cling to denial, refusing to see the truth. It happened when my child and I reported her abuser and it happens to other victims every day around the world. Blindfolds and Pitchforks details the story of my emotionally abusive partner who molested my daughter over a period of years and the subsequent re-victimization that we experienced as a result of turning him in. Our story is not rare; it is the norm.” – Stacy Coulter

Jody M. Goldie MA, LMFT Early Trauma and the Hope for Healing.

Jody will take us through an overview of how early trauma effects our basic neurology, attachment, and physiology and what we have learned about these areas has helped us to know how to move towards healing. Jody will incorporate different modes of therapies that address different parts of healing.
