About the Trainer:
Fatima Smith is is a survivor, relentless advocate, “social mom-trepreneur,” and founder of FMS Speaks. She established FMS Speaks as a way to share her passion for anti-violence work, racial justice, and engage folks in dialogue that ignites action for progress. Fatima built a career on providing advocacy and education of interpersonal violence prevention. As a social worker, she has spent her career establishing inter and intra agency partnerships instrumental in transforming programming and service delivery models on the needs of clients in service provision.
