NWCAVE presented information to over 250 registrants at the Louisiana APCO/NENA Annual Training Symposium. This is over 250 Telecommunicators, supervisors and managers from all over Louisiana. Their expertise and passion for eliminating Human Trafficking and Sexual Violence was so evident in their presentations. Thanks for all of the information and for taking the time to train our dispatchers.

Michelle Bart works tirelessly to provide support to women who have been victimized or exploited. It is heartbreaking to think that in this modern nation there is a need for such work, but there is, and that need is critical. To hear just of few of the stories from women Michelle and her organization has helped will, or should, drive you to support her in her courageous work.

The world is already a difficult place, and it would be far worse without the important work of NWCAVE. Michelle and team are diligent, devoted, and tireless in their pursuit of justice and representation. I am proud to be a friend and supporter.

NWCAVE is THE source for the prevention of violence and exploitation. Their dream of a world without violence is not only real, everything they do embodies that mission. I've seen first hand the good work they're doing in the local community and on the National stage. NWCAVE is a core member of our community and deserves our support to continue their mission. I am proud to be a donor and supporter of NWCAVE.

NWCAVE was sounding the alarm about human trafficking long before anyone else. This hard working organization fights against this ever growing problem in our society. It not only educates people, it also strives to abolish violence and any and all types of exploitation. This is an exemplary organization.

NWCAVE put on a Human Trafficking Victims Advocate training that was absolutely fantastic. I learned so much and was so excited to be a part of that experience. Even though I wasn’t able to pay, living on a student income at the time, they gave me a scholarship to attend. Their organization is so dedicated and passionate about their work. As a now Masters level social worker, I will be taking that training into my professional life. I feel honored to know them and am so glad they work in our area!

As a local physician and mother of 3 school aged children, I am always looking for the most up to date information and training on exploitation and violence against women and children to better inform not only my patients but my community and family. I have been an active community supporter of NWCAVE for 3 years since moving from out of state. The level of professionalism and up to date information that I have obtained and experienced with this non-profit has been off the charts. I am so very grateful to be supporting this organization and having the opportunity to share its strengths to my community.

As many have said, the dedication of Michelle Bart and NWCAVE is unmatched. I recently attended the No More Summit and was absolutely impressed with the speakers, trainers and participants. Michelle actually organized two conferences as the original dates in January were canceled at the last minute, due to weather. I'm not sure where Michelle gets her endless energy for the cause of ending violence and exploitation. She makes herself available whenever there is a need - I've never met a more tenacious individual. THANK YOU!

A moving closing to the No More Conference was keynote speaker Brenda Tracy. Our team remained behind together for a full hour afterward to process what Brenda Tracy had shared with us. Each of us, dealing with our own traumas, collected ourselves and became more resolved than ever to do our part to prevent sexual violence on the Linfield College campus and in our community. We are empowered and energized. Thank you NWCAVE and all its sponsors for putting together this phenomenal weekend of speakers and workshops.

After 16 years out of the life, I unexpectedly reunited with my groomer at a meeting. NWCAVE has be a huge advocate on my journey dealing with my triggers, referring me to resources to get mental and emotional help, along with helping me stand up for myself and put closure to my situation. I appreciate the honesty and willingness to help. They are making tidal waves in our community.
