About the Presenters: Francine Garland Stark began her career in the movement to end domestic violence in 1985 as a volunteer for Women Helping Battered Women in Burlington, VT. She served as the Administrative Coordinator and later Community Response and Training Coordinator for Spruce Run Association (now Partners for Peace) in Penobscot County from 1986-2009, and as Executive Director of Hope and Justice Project in Aroostook County 2009-2015. As Executive Director of the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence, she serves on the Governor’s Commission on Domestic and Sexual Abuse and the Homicide Review Panel, as well as the Justice Assistance Council. She has developed and provided education and training programs to increase recognition and response to domestic abuse in a wide range of contexts. Karen Wyman joined MCEDV in March of 2019 as the Violence Prevention and Intervention Coordinator. In her role, she supports statewide prevention and intervention approaches that move us - individuals and communities - toward greater safety and collective liberation. Karen has over 20 years of experience in social change and service roles – in Maine, New Mexico, and Ohio. Since earning her Bachelor of Arts in English from Alfred University, her work has focused on promoting and creating justice for people at society’s margins, whatever the reason for their marginalization. That has taken the shape of anti-violence and gender-based justice, economic justice, and community education – sometimes all at the same time. She has a keen ability to connect the experiences of individuals to systemic challenges, and her strategic and practical thinking helps bring us closer to solutions that move us all toward systems and relationships based on respect and equity.   Cost: $80  Important Information About our Training Location: A continental breakfast, hot coffee and tea, and Lunch will be provided.  Please let us know about any dietary restrictions by completing the registration questions. The most accessible way to enter the venue is to use the deck ramp, at the front entrance there is a lip which can be hard to navigate if using a wheelchair or walker.  Morgan Hill has a very large parking lot for our use, and has asked that no one parks on the lawn.  There is NO smoking on the deck of the venue, but there are two smoking canisters out front for folks to utilize. Helpful Registration Tips We have become aware that some people have had issues with the Eventbrite registration. If you are having trouble registering, there are a few different things you can try:  Try using a different web browser.  Eventbrite recommends using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as they are the most compatible with their platform, since these browsers typically update more frequently. (They do not recommend Internet Explorer and Safari, since they are updated less often.) Try a different device.  Some people have had success using their phone versus their computer. Make sure that all starred questions have an answer, as they are required. Registration will not go through if there are unanswered questions in your form. If you are still having difficulties signing up for a training, please contact Amy@mcedv.org and she can help with this process.
