To commemorate October being Domestic Violence Awareness month, this past Saturday, Oct. 3, New York’s New Legacy Leaders partnered with Harlem Hospital Center to host a dynamic empowerment event entitled “New Legacy Leaders Domestic Violence Healing Conference.” The event was free and open to the public. The conference featured some of the nation’s most respected opinion makers and activists in the field of domestic violence and child welfare.

The event was hosted by NLL co-founders Terrie M. Williams (author, mental health activist) and Madeline McCray (actress, DV awareness activist, women’s empowerment speaker).
