Dear SNAP members, supporters and loved ones,

We are pleased to inform you that SNAP is holding two conferences in the new year!

Washington D.C.


There has never been a better time to visit our nation’s capital and I’ll tell you why.

1. With autumn temperatures in the low 70′s and rain showers few and far between you won’t have to sweat, bundle up or pack an umbrella. Plus, this time of year the fall foliage is absolutely gorgeous.

The regular summer conference will take place in Washington DC in July.

For the first time SNAP will hold a conference outside the United States. It will be held in April in Dublin, Ireland.

Many survivors, loved ones and supporters from across the globe are courageously speaking up, exposing the truth, protecting children and working for justice. We want to create the opportunity for those from different countries to meet. In spite the miles that separate us and the different languages we speak we share a common bond.

The Dublin conference will be open to all survivors, loved ones, supporters and professionals. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Check out the details below and notice the early bird specials to get deep discounts on registration fees. While we know travel is never easy or inexpensive, meeting and sharing experiences with others from other cities and countries makes it all worthwhile.

For more information on both conferences see below.

If you have questions please contact Barbara Dorris at: or call +1 312 455 1499.

Please save the dates !!

All the best,
Barbara Blaine

I came across this very important information (via a link) last night, as I was browsing the front web-page of Shame of Ireland. SNAP does fantastic work. I really do hope that both conferences are thriving successes. Child abuse issues need to be addressed at every hands turn and at every cross-road around the globe.
