If I am Missing or Dead - 

The Rotary Leadership Series is proud to present a true champion for a most important cause… Janine Latus. Author of the New York Times best seller, If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister’s Story of Love, Murder and Liberation, Janine will share her personal stories and insights on the subject of sexual assault and domestic violence.

Janine is a dynamic and engaging speaker on the spectrum of sexual assault and intimate partner violence. She has told her story to hundreds of audiences, from the United States military to universities, high schools and corporations, including Major League Baseball, and she leaves audiences haunted by her insights. She has helped shelters and social service agencies raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, has helped corporations create a safer environment by teaching them how to recognize the symptoms of abuse, and has served as part of a team intent on improving the climate within military structures.

Janine uses her own heart-breaking story to illustrate the insidious signs of abuse, to help audience members recognize them in their own lives and in those of the people around them, to intervene or ask for help, to break free or help others to do so, and then to build a life of respect and freedom from fear. Her talks are part story, part strategy, based on the Duluth Power & Control Wheel and full of practical action items. But because they are built on a story, they resonate long after everyone has left the session room.

Janine's presentation will be in person during the April 6 Rotary Club of La Crosse meeting. The presentaiton is open to members of any La Crosse Area Rotary club and their guests. If you can't attend in person, please join us via Zoom.
