2020 Annual Conference

Echo’s 2020 conference will celebrate survivor resilience and empowerment. Presenters are trauma survivors – many recognizable from recent high profile cases – who bring survivor wisdom in addition to their professional talent and expertise. Workshops will provide skills and knowledge to empower survivors so that we may exercise greater power and control over our own lives and recovery.
