This year's Keynote Speaker is Denise Brown, who will share her story about how she led a life remarkable only in its normalcy until June 12, 1994, when her sister, Nicole Brown Simpson, was murdered. Brown's life path dramatically altered. She is also committed to raising awareness against domestic violence - a crime that kills four women every day in the United States.
