If ever there were one woman who took on advocacy as a champion, it’s Anne Seymour. Shattered Lives is proud and honored to have her as a guest to share her vast knowledge of victim advocacy.
When crime or mass crisis happens, victims are unwillingly thrust into the limelight, adding yet more stress to their most wounded experiences, becoming victimized again. What resources are available to protect and shield victims from approaching media who are often inappropriate? How can the public change it’s appetite for instant access?
Anne Seymour will speak to the listeners about her experience with crisis response in Edmund, Oklahoma and Columbine, and how these mass tragedies are continuing to occur. What can we do about it? Anne Seymour will give fact based solutions. She will discuss how media is helping or hurting when crises happen and how social media has changed the landscape of where and how we get our facts, along with mis-information.
