Violence at Home: What to do. Who to turn to. 
Nationally, 1 in 4 families experience domestic violence.  In 2009, there were 175,000 domestic violence calls.  One of these calls could end up in homicide.  Domestic violence should not happen. But it does.  At home. In the workplace.  It's been identified as one of the barriers to career advancement.  Find out how and why you should not feel alone when domestic violence happens to you or someone you know.

Filipina Superwoman:  Yes! I Can Fly!
Jessica Cox
Pilot (first licensed pilot with no arms)
(‘09 FWN 100)
To be introduced by Norma Edar ('09 FWN 100)

Awe-inspiring story of Jessica Cox.  Born without arms, Jessica now flies airplanes, drives cars, and otherwise lives a normal life using her feet as others use their hands. She holds the title of the first person without arms in the American Tae Kwon-Do Association to get a black belt and the first woman pilot in aviation history to fly with her feet. Her talk is a most apt title for a heart-warming story of her life and her mother's determination that she can independently take care of herself and lead a normal life.

See you next year!!!
