The first annual Behold the Power of Women conference will take place on April 6th in Mt. Laurel. National Stop the Violence Alliance, Inc. was created in 1991 by Dr. Stephne' R. Coney in the kitchen of her Camden, New Jersey residence. A native of Camden, Dr. Coney saw how violence and other ailments affected her neighborhood and the citizens within. Violence and gang activity had grown rapid and its effects became much more internal than external. With the teachings of nonviolence seen in the philosophies of Mohandas Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa, Dr. Coney incorporated National Stop the Violence and its immediate mission was to end violence across the country.
This activity seeks to increase educator effectiveness within the classroom when dealing with crisis or unfair situations for students, such as bullying or school violence. The conference will be in compliance with the Standards for Professional Learning for NJ Educators.
