Domestic Violence Crisis Center will go online this year to host its “Voices of Courage Virtual Spring Luncheon” on May 21 from 11:45 to 1 p.m. The event’s keynote speaker is Rachel Louise Snyder, award-winning journalist and author of No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us. Her acclaimed book was named one of the New York Times “Top 10 Books of the Year,” National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist, and most recently an LA Times Book Prize finalist.

“Rachel Louise Snyder’s work is bringing a new level of understanding and awareness about domestic violence issues in America today. We are so proud to have her as our speaker,” said Suzanne Adam, DVCC’s Executive Director. “The timing of her presentation is really poignant during the COVID-19 crisis, where we have seen so many reports of domestic violence victims being especially vulnerable because of stay-at-home orders.”
