The Harlan County Domestic Violence Council and Cumberland Valley Domestic Violence Service have announced the ninth annual “Believing in Ourselves: A Celebration of Appalachian Women Conference,” a fun-filled, educational self-esteem summit, a day of workshops of interest to women.
The conference will be held on Aug. 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Harlan Center.
The day will begin with registration and welcome by the Harlan County Domestic Violence Council members. Immediately following registration, participants will break into their individual workshops. Each workshop will consist of a 55-minute session.
At 12:15 p.m., attendees will come together as a group for a catered lunch (provided at no cost to participants).
