2015 Poznan Conference

2015 Poznan Conference

Fundacja Nie lękajcie się, in conjunction with SNAP, is planning a conference which will be held the weekend of 13-15 November, 2015 in Poznan, Poland. We are inviting survivors, supporters, attorneys, law enforcement officers and health care professionals and anyone interested to participate with the goal to prevent sexual abuse and promote healing.

Brave survivors in Poland are courageously speaking out and creating change! As a result, children and vulnerable adults will be safer and those suffering in silence and shame will learn they are not alone.

Entry to the conference is free. A suggested donation of $59 is being collected.  We hope you can attend! Book your room at the Camping Hotel Malta and mention you are with SNAP for a discounted rate.
