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.

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.

Now in its third year, this annual gathering of abuse survivors, advocates, and those who love them is an event uniquely poised for this moment in history.

 
 

RALEIGH, NC

October 19th-20th, 2018

what you will find

The Courage Conference offers a unique opportunity to learn from advocates and trained professionals through inspiring keynote talks, Courage Conversations, as well as connecting attendees with reputable local and national organizations. The Courage Conference is an ideal place for community leaders, pastors, and church workers 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.
