Hurt2Healing Presents "Turning Wounds Into Wisdom" - The Women of Transformation Summit in Houston

On December 13, 2014, Hurt2Healing Magazine will come off of the pages to provide an empowering experience with dynamic speakers and expert panelists who will tell their story and provide sound guidance. This will be a very interactive session. Domestic Violence and sexual abuse is an epidemic that affects women and girls all over the world. On this day, shame and loneliness will shed like the ashes from the Phoenix Bird

"On December 13th, attendees will experience the power they've had all along and claim the life they deserve, the magnificent purpose God Created them to fulfill", says Ebony S. Muhammad, the Publisher of Hurt2Healing magazine. 

“We are in a state of suffering that can no longer be ignored or be categorized as another case study or statistic", she continued.

Ms. Muhammad is sounding the alarm. She is calling together all women and girls ages 10 and up for a day that will be the catalyst to transforming Wounds Into Wisdom

According to VictimsOfCrime.org, 1 out of 5 girls are a victim of child sexual abuse. 20% of self-report studies show that adult females experience sexual assault or abuse. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 out of 5 women have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 1 out of 5 women (19.3 million) experienced stalking victimization during their lifetime in which they felt very fearful or believed that they or someone close to them would be harmed or killed

"The troubling fact about these statistics is that these are only the reported cases. Imagine the countless cases that have gone unreported...it's unimaginable", said Ms. Muhammad. Those who are victims of such crimes are likely to experience severe depression, suicidal thoughts or worse, losing their life at the hands of their tormentor. 

Ms. Muhammad concluded with these words,"It's time to gather all women and girls for a life-changing experience that will not only arm them in the case of prevention, but also initiate a healing from their pain to be transformed. Our suffering in silence is OVER!" 

Featured guest presenters include international award-winning speaker, Kelly Sargeant, who is also a survivor/victor of child molestation; Attorney Sadiyah Evangelista, who is a survivor/victor of child molestation and domestic violence and Mavis Jackson, who is a survivor/victor of domestic violence and substance abuse. In addition to the speakers the expert panelists include Deric Muhammad, a Houston-based Activist and the Founder of Hurt2Healing; Charissa Hall, Licensed Professional Counselor and Charlene Muhammad, the National Correspondent for The Final Call News and Founder of Pumps on the Ground.
