About the speakers:
JC Glick, a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the US Army, is a decorated military veteran with a distinguished career that includes 11 combat tours, primarily in Special Operations. Known for his leadership and courage on the battlefield, JC brings a different kind of bravery to this talk, one that stems from his personal experience as a survivor of domestic violence. His story is a testament to resilience, to rising above trauma, and to the power of speaking out. His journey from silence to survivorship provides invaluable insight and comfort to others walking similar paths.
Jennifer Glick, a passionate advocate for survivors of domestic violence, brings to the table a wealth of professional knowledge and a relentless drive for justice. She has served as a prosecutor in Nassau County, New York, and honed her legal expertise at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Jennifer now dedicates her skills to Columbia University Medical School as a Survivor Advocate, providing support and legal guidance to survivors. Her dedication to combating gender based violence and advocating for victims complements the practical, legal view of this societal scourge.
This talk is not just about the individual experience of domestic violence, but also the broader implications. JC and Jennifer will shed light on the often misunderstood and overlooked aspects of domestic violence, challenging societal norms and misconceptions, and empowering others with knowledge and resources. Join us as we create a space for open discussion, encouraging understanding, empathy, and action against domestic violence. It’s time for society to listen, learn, and lead the way toward change. Be a part of this critical conversation. Let’s stand together against domestic violence.
We look forward to welcoming you to this insightful and impactful event. Together, we can make a difference.
