The UVU College of Humanities and Social Sciences, in partnership with its sponsors and supporters, is proud to present the 2021 UVU Conference on Domestic Violence. This single-day, virtual conference--designed to meet the needs and interests of professionals, service providers, families, community members, and students--will provide information on a wide range of topics dealing with domestic, intimate partner, dating, and interpersonal violence. This event is scheduled for Friday, April 2, 2021, and will be held 100% online.

We were devastated last year, when, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to cancel that conference. We’re excited to be getting back on track for 2021, and can't wait to get together once again.

Speakers to be determined

Ludy Green

Opening Keynote: Dr. Ludy Green

Dr. Ludy Green is one of the world’s foremost experts on violence against women and children. She speaks regularly in national and international venues on the importance of financial autonomy in breaking the abusive patterns that hold captive victims of violence and human trafficking, and she is a contributing writer on women’s issues for the Huffington Post as well as the author of Ending Domestic Violence Captivity: A Guide to Economic Freedom.

The methodology pioneered by Dr. Green has been validated by the work of the non-profit organization she founded in 2001, Second Chance Employment Services. Second Chance’s innovative program has been uniquely successful in helping hundreds of survivors attain lifelong freedom from domestic violence and human trafficking through financial and emotional independence.
