Interpersonal violence and abuse has a traumatic impact on victims and survivors that influences all of their interactions with others. Service providers, faith leaders, law enforcement, court personnel, health care providers, teachers, employers, family, friends, and neighbors all play a role in helping or hindering victim safety and offender accountability. The YWCA Conference on Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse aims to provide training opportunities for everyone to respond positively and effectively to domestic and sexual violence and abuse. The YWCA annual conference invites experts to share their experience in working with men, women, and children who are impacted by violence and abuse, as well as information on best practices for services and interventions.

The Ann Marie Kemp Keynote by John and Beth Beams is sponsored by the Ann Marie Kemp Foundation. The foundation was established to honor Ann Marie’s dedication and commitment to helping others, especially women and children who were experiencing difficult life circumstances. She wanted young women to have the opportunity to do more than survive, but to thrive. Ann Marie was born and raised in this area, graduated from Lewiston High School and attended the University of Idaho. The Ann Marie Kemp Foundation, established by Ann Marie’s husband and friends, believes that “In a world filled with people who couldn’t care less, we strive to be people who couldn’t care more.” A special Thank You to the Ann Marie Kemp Foundation for supporting the YWCA Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse Conference 2016.
