coalition work

 
 

The Kentucky Domestic Violence Association (KDVA), the coalition of 16 domestic violence programs, taught me how to teach and learn continuously. How I could support advocates across the state and nation through innovative programming, trainings and retreats.  I met an amazing group of women in prison that changed my life.  I love these women, and today I am thankful to say almost all of them are outside those prison walls.  These women propel me to educate people on the pathways to incarceration and how we prevent women who are victims of power-based personal violence from this fate.  KDVA was also where my love for art and activism was born, culminating in two play productions with 86 women, two thousand audience members, life altering circles of friendship, and a new path for my work.
