National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
May 26, 2010
In the 1970s and 1980s, when the movement to end violence against women and children had just started hotline and shelter services for survivors of violence, I attended a meeting where Rita Smith had just been hired as Executive Director. Since that time, Ms. Smith has been one of the most revered people in our movement. She has been a rock, unflinchingly brave, a gentle and caring leader who inspires all of us to continue in this work. Because of her work and commitment, NCADV leads in policy development and services for those of us who live for and work a time when everyone will live free from violence.
