"You are a very great Orator".
"One of the Nation's most powerful advocates for victims and survivors of domestic violence"
Ms. Muhammad recently spoke at our May 10th, 2016 Annual Luncheon where we raised over $100,000 for our Capital Campaign, and an additional $75,000 for our Annual Fund. Her enthusiasm and wit played a crucial role in the success of our event. Mildred’s perseverance, hope, and strength were evident in every aspect of her interactions.
One of the most memorable moments of our luncheon which resonated with our over 500 attendees was at the end of her talk. Ms. Muhammad asked if any survivors would be willing to stand up with her in support of each other and the still-silent victims in the room. It was a chilling and powerful moment, as people all over the room stood up in support.
Mildred Muhammad is an energetic, passionate woman who easily commanded the attention of every single person during our event. It is my pleasure to recommend Mildred Muhammad as a keynote speaker.
The YWCA Pierce County contacted Mildred to be our keynote speaker for our annual luncheon attended by 550 people. Mildred shared her story of abuse and the involvement our agency had in serving her back in 2002.
Our focus is entirely on serving domestic violence victims and their families with shelter, legal representation, support groups and a therapeutic children's program. The audience appreciated hearing her story and understanding the complexities of domestic violence.
At the end of her speech, she asked if other survivors would be willing to stand with her. A number of women stood up. It was a powerful moment. I would recommend her as a speaker.
"On behalf of the staff and members of Metropolitan DC OASIS, we wish to thank you for your recent presentation, I'm Still Standing: Crawling Out of the Darkness Into the Light, on June 5, 2018.
The evaluations of your presentation were universally "excellent." Participants described your talk as compelling, dynamic, riveting, and uplifting. Many commented on your courage and the value of your advice to others experiencing domestic violence. One person wrote "she can bring one to tears with her honesty and with what she endured."
We appreciate your responsiveness in setting up this presentation. Once again, please accept our sincere thanks for your support of our mission to promote successful aging via lifelong learning."
"Please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation in the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Domestic Violence Awareness Month Community Partner Breakfast. Everyone was captivated by your story.
As you spoke one could feel your fears, understand your disappointments, empathize with your children, and marvel at your strength to move beyond the abuse to help others.
Your courage in sharing the very personal details of your experiences significantly increased our awareness and understanding of the complexities involved in domestic violence. Hearing this message from the voice of a Survivor was essential to the learning process. Your message touched us in a special way and will continue to touch others as we talk about the issues you raised for individuals and our community.
You have truly turned your tragic circumstances into an opportunity to help other victims of emotional and verbal abuse, a topic often overlooked."
Our Keweenaw Bay Indian Tribal community was blessed to have Mildred spend time with us during Domestic Violence Awareness month in 2011. She was then, as she is now, a powerful speaker.
The presentation of her story will move you to tears while compelling you to seek change and make a difference!
If an opportunity to hear Mildred speak, do so!
"Ms Muhammad's presentation was spectacular! It was engaging, honest, and very enlightening as she shared her personal experiences. She presented some of her life scenarios with humor and displayed compassion at the same time.
Ms Muhammad also provided multiple responses to questions from our audience during the conference. Her answers were heartfelt and considerate to the participants sharing their personal experiences.
Her presentation was two hours long however our participants did not grow tired of listening to her resilient experiences that involved her family. This program was designed for mental health professionals, psychologists, social workers, counselors, law enforcement and military affiliates.
We truly enjoyed having her presentation and would be pleased to have her return to speak again in the near future."
