Who are We and What is the Courage in Action Conference?

We are a not for profit organization helping women coming from difficult circumstances move forward in their lives.  Our goal is to provide our participants with the tools, motivation and hope that uplifts and inspires them to create new or different outcomes.

We accomplish this through one day conferences with presentations, workshops and activities presented by professional women, many who come from similar backgrounds and have moved beyond their situation, in other words they “walk the talk”.

The conference is free for the first 100 women who register and is operated by volunteers with the aid of very generous sponsors.  It’s a full day filled with passionate speakers, interactive activities and includes healthy choices for breakfast, lunch and snacks throughout the day.
