On January 31 and February 1, 2019,  over 330 professionals came together in High Point, NC to discuss the Family Justice Center model and Collaborative Communities initiatives.  These professionals represented community leaders, elected officials, survivors, advocates, civil and criminal attorneys, law enforcement, social workers, and mental health professionals from the national, state and local levels.  

The attendees used these two days to connect with others from across the state and engaged in various learning opportunities.  These connections helped to further build our capacity to have a greater impact in our shared efforts to save lives and reduce violence.  

This conference offered a variety of topics for professionals to participate in engaging conversations and problem solving sessions.  Lt. Mark Wynn provided an informative and engaging keynote speech.  Gael Strack, Esq., along with Sgt. Craig Varnum, provided a four hour strangulation prevention course to help educate professionals in the field.  Please see the agenda posted below for more information on the topics discussed throughout the two day conference.
