A Time for Courage

The world has changed. Titans have been toppled, industries are transforming, and the value of a single voice is now being felt with the collective power of a multitude. Our society is experiencing a convulsion where stories and wounds that have been buried for so long can finally be heard. In this moment of worldwide reassessment—where we discover how to detect, discuss, and defeat abuse and its aftermath—The Courage Conference stands ready to act.

Join us.

Healing Together

The Courage Conference exists to be a refuge for survivors, to educate and empower advocates, and create the conditions where this movement for change can become a Justice Generation that recognizes and resists abuse everywhere.

By popular demand, The Courage Conference 2019 is bringing back small workshops and intentionally creating space to develop new relationships with other survivors and advocates.

The Courage Conference offers a unique opportunity to learn from survivors, advocates, and trained professionals through inspiring keynote talks and workshops. We connect attendees with reputable local and national organizations and make space for valuable connections. The Courage Conference is an ideal place for survivors, advocates, community leaders, and faith leaders to become educated about abuse from advocates who confront it and survivors who live with its effects every day.

It is our goal that everyone leaves empowered to live the most courageous life possible.
