About the event


"What Does It Look Like?" Two Year Survivorship Discussion sponsored by SNMM, LCWAG and Karima Nasser.

Silence No More Movement (SNMM), Loudoun Coalition on Women and Girls (LCWAG), and Women Giving Back sincerely invite you to participate in our “What Does It Look Like? Two-Year Survivorship Discussion”. The Discussion will be held on April 12, 2024, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the Loudoun Higher Education Center, NVCC Loudoun Campus, Ankers Shop Cir, Potomac Falls, VA 20164.

The discussion will gather various organizations, advocates, agencies, community members, law firms, elected officials, and real-time victims and survivors from across the DMV. Each participant brings heartfelt expertise and experiences to the table. By listening, we can uncover the various ways domestic violence presents itself, gain firsthand knowledge of the roadblocks victims endure when seeking help, and understand the crucial questions we ask to effectively address domestic violence. Through our discussion, we will begin to identify the areas that need strengthening and lengthening within our support system.

As an invited participant, we believe that you share our understanding that domestic violence affects us all, irrespective of status, gender, race, or age. It’s important to acknowledge that the statistic of a victim returning 7-12 times to their abusers highlights there is a breakdown somewhere. As we know, the healing process for victims often begins long after they have escaped their abusers – as they truly consider the other forms of abuse they have endured such as mental, verbal, emotional, financial, spiritual, and in many cases sexual abuse in addition to the physical harm.

The desired outcome of our discussion is to lay the groundwork for providing coordinated services across Loudoun County. Establishing a two-year platform to support ‘victims into survivorship’ will significantly decrease the instances of victims returning to abusive environments. This, in turn, can have a domino effect, lowering isolation, depression, embarrassment, financial loss, and generational abuse – ultimately saving lives.

We hope you will join us for this powerful and impactful event. Your insights and contributions would be invaluable as you collaborate with SNMM to create a safer and more supportive community for survivors of domestic violence.
