Association of Family and Conciliation Courts
55th Annual Conference

Compassionate Family Court Systems: The Role of Trauma-Informed Jurisprudence
June 6-9, 2018
Washington Hilton
Washington, DC

The President of AFCC states: “It’s hard to know where to start when describing this conference. Our opening session features Jaycee Dugard. Ms. Dugard was abducted at the age of 11 and was held by her captors for eighteen years. During her time as a hostage, she gave birth twice and raised the children, in captivity, to the ages of 11 and 15 before they were rescued. She has turned that hor- ror into goodness through the JAYC Foundation, which provides assis- tance to families dealing with abduction and other traumas.”
Jaycee Dugard will be speaking with Drs. Matthew Sullivan and Rebecca Bailey about the work the Foundation has been doing.
