​Domestic Violence Speakers Bureau

The Domestic Violence Speakers Bureau (DVSB) is a group of volunteers and domestic violence survivors who educate the community about domestic violence through dynamic presentations and story telling. The DVSB is a community partnership between Prevention and Intervention Services and Safe Alliance. People in the community can join the DVSB by applying and then completing the DVSB four-session training.
