THE FOUNDING COLLABORATIVE PARTNERS

Our collaborative partners are what make DIfference Makers strong. They are not only recognized Difference Makers (10 Strong) presenters but each have the ability to lead conversations with their own respective organizations. Each of them have extensive knowledge and expertise in various forms of violence, some of which have more than one focus area. If you'd like to make contact with them directly, please feel free to do so. You may also contact Difference Makers (10 Strong) to reach them and we'll gladly make the connection. We are all here to assist you and your community. One mission, changing culture - stronger together!
