“The best part is the chance to network and share ideas. I feel recharged after being with so many likeminded folks.”

–Carol James Steegman

“My Top 3 reasons to attend the national conference: (1) relationships—creating social capital, being with likeminded people, and peer support; (2) learning opportunities for all sectors—graduates, nurses, criminal justice, community, and education; (3) encouragement—being lifted up and inspired to go back to your community and change the world.”

–Treasure McKenzie
