Revive-Thrive-Balance: Strengthening Our Foundation for Advocacy and Compassion

Join advocates, allied professionals, and community leaders from across Virginia as we come together to celebrate our movement, the resiliency of survivors, and build our compassion reservoirs. We will be surrounded by the lush Roanoke Valley and will have ample opportunities for networking and relationship building while attending an array of workshops designed to expand our knowledge, grow our toolkits, and deepen our understanding of the impact of trauma on diverse survivors.
