Domestic Violence Alliance is usually an annual day-long seminar held each October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Since 1998 KCMBF the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Foundation has provided education to over 2,200 professionals who work to combat domestic violence. This year, in celebration of 25 years, we have greatly expanded our programming to welcome nationally-recognized speakers. Our goal is to enrich the community and provide content relevant to attorneys, judges, social workers, therapists, law enforcement professionals, and members of the public at large.
This program is made possible by the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Foundation, a grant from the Missouri Lawyer Trust Account Foundation, and by donations from people like you.
