Join me this weekend at the domestic violence conference of the decade here in Los Angeles--"From Ideology to Inclusion 2009: New Directions in Domestic Violence Research and Intervention"
If you mention "Glenn Sacks" or "Fathers & Families" at the door, you get a $100 discount and pay only $295. This includes a catered brunch, two breakfasts, lunches and afternoon snacks, plus two evening receptions with live entertainment.
The conference begins this Friday (6/26) at noon and goes through Saturday and Sunday. Register at the door at 10 AM on Friday or 7:30 AM on Saturday.
Some of you may remember that I wrote extensively about the 2008 conference, which was fascinating and informative--to learn more, click here.
