My Sister’s House Executive Director Emily Lemus recently was selected to speak to a distinguished group of rising leaders from Latin America and Europe as part of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitors Leadership Program on the topic of “Ending Gender-Based Violence.”

Along with representatives from the N.C. Coalition on Domestic Violence and the Duke University Center for Child and Family Policy, the panelists discussed best practices for providing services to survivors of domestic violence in rural North Carolina, where reaching those in need can be particularly challenging.
