Select Testimonials

Lovern is an engaging and charismatic presenter and educator. She provided an awareness workshop for our Court Appointed Special Advocates and was able to quickly create a safe and welcoming environment. It was powerful to witness a diverse group of individuals put down their guard and reflect on the fact that Domestic Violence has no racial or class boundaries. Lovern is a dynamic, authentic and inspiring woman. Boston CASA is grateful for her contribution and commitment to address social justice issues affecting our communities.

Adriana Cordero Raines, Recruitment and Training Manager for Boston CASA

Thank you for bringing a higher level of Domestic Violence Awareness to our WIC staff today through your professional knowledge and personal experience! Staff was truly moved through your presentation surrounding the issue of domestic violence and learned important information that will help them reach participants that could be facing domestic violence.

We were honored to have you speak Lovern, you are a star!

Marcia Szymanski, Executive Director of New Hope

Lovern: Thank you very much for coming and speaking with our International Chinese Exchange Students today. Your story is one that is very moving and needs to be told. I know it made an impact on our students. Knowing there are people who can help them is important, whether they are victims themselves or they witness an abusive situation. We will debrief in our classes and also remind students that by listening, learning and becoming more aware, they can also be agents of change.
