Casey Gwinn, President of the National Family Justice Center Alliance, and Gael Strack, CEO of the Alliance presented the award to Else in San Antonio, Texas during the second day of the International Family Justice Center Conference.   

“Sue Else’s leadership, vision and passion has saved countless lives, and she continues to provide powerful leadership to the ongoing struggle in the U.S. and around the world to stop violence against women,” said Gwinn.   

“I am very honored by and grateful for this special recognition,” said Else.  “Over my lifetime, the movement against domestic and sexual violence has come a long way, but we all know we have a long way to go.” 

More than 400 attendees were present to honor Else for her past and present work to influence public policy, raise public awareness and support the work of hundreds of organizations in the United States and around the world.  Else is the fourth recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. 

The International Family Justice Center Conference is focused on developing the rapidly expanding network of Family Justice Centers and other types of co-located, multi-agency Centers serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse, stalking and human trafficking the world over.
