VidaNyx, the premier secure digital evidence collaboration enterprise supporting multidisciplinary collaboration on cases of child sexual assault, abuse, and neglect across more than 4,000 agencies in the US, will host the third annual Survivor Support Day on July 9th with national partners National Children’s Alliance and Darkness to Light.
Officially proclaimed Survivor Support Day by Governors in multiple states from coast to coast, VidaNyx is proud to host keynote speaker, Tabitha Mpamira, international advocate, mental health therapist, and consultant on sexual and gender-based violence who founded EDJA in 2015 to provide free medical, legal, and mental health services to sexual assault survivors in East Africa. Ms. Mpamira, who was recognized with the 2018 People’s Choice Waislitz Award by Global Citizen and was just honored with the Advocate Award June 30th by the Female Founders Alliance, will deliver a message of hope and healing for the professionals on the front lines of interrupting abuse and trauma.
“It is an honor to celebrate the heart of these incredible professionals delivering lifesaving services to children on a daily basis. We are thrilled to have Ms. Mpamira’s expertise to provide some practical tools for these professionals to tend to their own wellbeing – especially after such a trying year,” Sara Boyd, VidaNyx CEO. “Because we have the privilege to see the impact child advocacy makes on the lives of tens of thousands of survivors of abuse, we want to celebrate and amplify the strength and spirit of these amazing individuals and teams in their communities and across the country.”
