Conference on Toxic Relationships,

Durham, North Carolina, United States Durham, North Carolina, United States

  • About the event

    After losing my best friend and her daughter to domestic violence I wanted to do something to educate women and young women about dating relationships.  Had my girlfriends daughter made a better choice for a intimate partner they may very well be alive today. Her abusive boyfriend shot and killed my friend and her daughter in front of their two children.  I believe when women make wise relationship choices they reduce their risk of becoming victims to domestic violence. 

    The purpose of this conference is to equip the attendees with tangible and practical tools that will help them make better dating choices before consummating intimate, toxic relationships.  

    The premise is to share with the attendees tips on how to avoid getting into relationships with a person with the propensity for abusive behavior.  We all know what the problems are, we've talked about them year after year. This conference is about elevating consciousness, building up confidence and developing authentic character that will transform participants long after they leave the conference.  

    Why should you sponsor?

    I believe this is an important topic of interest to the people in the Durham and surrounding areas.  Women especially and teenage girls can benefit from the information that the host of guest speakers will share with them during this event.  We want to reach the young ladies who are embracing their adult life to ensure they have the knowledge to implement action steps and make better choices early in their young adult life.  

    I hope you agree this is a much needed event for the community and worthy of your support as we endeavor to enhance the quality of life for those in living in Durham and residents of the surrounding areas.  

    I thank you for your time and look forward to hearing back from you about this significant collaborative opportunity!
