Janine Latus was an incredible speaker for us in 2017.  Of course sharing her sister’s tragic story was absolutely heart-wrenching, but what I found especially compelling was her own personal story of abuse which was less about the physical but more verbal abuse in her previous relationships. I can’t help but think this was eye-opening for some our attendees that may not have realized they could potentially be in the same situation.  She was also willing to do whatever she could to support our cause be that interviews, additional intimate events to help raise more awareness an funds for the YWCA, etc.
