Coalition to Host State Conference: NO MORE in Nebraska
KNOW More so there is NO More
On October 29-30, the Coalition will host a statewide conference, the NO MORE in Nebraska conference. It will be held at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln.
The NO MORE conference will have two primary focus areas: trauma and trauma informed services and outreach to LGBTQ communities. These focus areas were determined due to their inclusion in the statewide outreach plan that is created each year in partnership with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
The conference will feature both national and local speakers. The opening keynote will be provided by Laura VanDernoot Lipsky, author of Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others. She is the founder of the Trauma Stewardship Institute and has worked directly with trauma survivors for 25 years, including survivors of child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, acute trauma, and natural disasters.

A staff member from the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma and Mental Health recently stated: “Laura is simply amazing. I learn so much every time I hear her and it is often a really moving, transformational experience for people.”
Conference materials will be distributed in August. Registration will begin September 1 and close October 20.
The conference is open to anyone who wishes to enhance their response to victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence. A discounted registration rate will be available for organizations that are members of the Coalition (member organizations are those that pay annual dues to the Coalition). For more information about the conference, contact Michelle Z at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In conjunction with the statewide conference, the Coalition’s Board of Directors will host a celebration and awards banquet on the evening of October 29.
