The mission of the Collective Transformation conference is to spark an expansive, mindful, and courageous dialog about domestic violence, while celebrating End Abuse’s 45 years of service. Collective Transformation will explore the root causes of violence and the intersectionality of domestic abuse with other forms of abuse and oppression. As a statewide coalition, we acknowledge that transformation is a needed step to achieve a world in which all victims are liberated from violence if we are to live in a peaceful, violence-free world. The conference will be a celebration of our successes, a time to re-energize our movement as a collective, and an opportunity to work towards transformation.


Save the Date! Monday, November 27 to Wednesday, November 29, 2023, at the beautiful Monona Terrace & Convention Center.

Collective Transformation:  Building Power Through Change

End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin (End Abuse) invites you to share your ideas, skills, experience and passion at its statewide conference, Collective Transformation: Building Power through Change. The conference will be held from November 27-29, 2023, at the Monona Terrace and Convention Center in Madison, WI. Our audience includes, among others, advocates and activists for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and their communities, and stakeholders who work to end and prevent violence.

With a goal of building power through change, this conference will feature more than 40 diverse workshops, three dynamic keynote speakers, and other related special events.
