Speakers Bureau

The Foundation receives many requests throughout the year for speakers at local, state and national events. In view of this, the Foundation has established a Speakers Bureau of survivors to help fulfill some of these requests. We have provided training for our survivors. Some have already made presentations, and others are just waiting for the opportunity. Who better than a survivor to speak about the Foundation’s programs?
Foundation staff and our survivors consider it an honor to be asked to speak at your event/program.

Because of limited resources, the Foundation must charge a speakers fee and expenses to speak at your program.
