Published Date
September, 2018

Even for those who know this to be true, advocating for the value of our own stories can be challenging, as it can be complicated by our experiences of trauma and oppression, and truly impacted by our cultural values.

In this 1-hour panel discussion, representatives of the ACE-DV Leadership Forum explore considerations for valuing your worth as a speaker, making the case to our agencies/ systems, negotiating contract terms and fees, retaining rights to your story, and the risks and challenges in speaking your truth, especially for those who experience multiple layers of oppression. Participants will have the opportunity to build confidence and practical skills related to advocating for themselves within this context.
