Keynote Speaker – Matt Brown, Domestic violence advocate; Founder of She Is Not Your Rehab
An anti-violence movement which hosts free men’s anti-violence support groups, She Is Not Your Rehab has seen global success. Alongside his wife Sarah Brown, Matt works to eradicate domestic violence by supporting those who perpetrate violence, to heal.
A survivor of family violence and childhood sexual abuse himself, Matt originally started his domestic violence advocacy work by sharing his story with the men who frequented his busy barbershops. He saw connecting with men in this relaxed setting as a way to foster vulnerability, healing, and connection. Matt believes his true calling lies in his work to redefine societies view of masculinity, and to help end the cycle of domestic violence plaguing families all over the world.
