Description

The annual Parent Leadership Conference will be held November 2-3, 2018 at the Downtown Ramada Hotel and Convention Center is Topeka, KS.

This free event will include breakout sessions, speakers, childcare and more. This year’s conference will feature keynote speaker the Reverend Darrell Armstrong. Reverend Armstrong is a shining example of resilience and a success story defying all odds. Rev. Armstrong and his three younger brothers spent many years of their lives as foster children in Los Angeles County. He went on to earn his B.A. in Public Policy from Stanford University, Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and an Ed.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy from the College of New Jersey. In addition to his academic achievements, Reverend Armstrong has established himself as a vital voice for abused and neglected children and their families. Reverend Armstrong is the former director of the Division of Prevention and Community Partnerships of the New Jersey Department of Children and Families. Prior to leaving this position, he managed the state’s strategy to prevent child abuse, maltreatment, and neglect by strengthening and supporting New Jersey’s families. He is currently a member of the Prevent Child Abuse America Board of Directors.
