2023 Two Days in May Conference on Victim Assistance

Registration now open, two keynote speakers set

The Ohio Attorney General's Office is continuing a proud tradition in hosting the 31st annual Two Days in May Conference on Victim Assistance, scheduled for May 8-9, 2023, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Registration is now open for the annual event, during which Attorney General Dave Yost's office, conference partners and workshop presenters from across disciplines will offer an array of professional-development opportunities for victim advocates who serve their communities and the criminal justice system. The 2023 conference theme, Empowering Survivors to Rebuild Lives, reflects the work being done every single day in the world of advocacy.

Attorney General Yost and his Crime Victim Services Section are excited to announce our two keynote speakers for this year’s TDIM conference:

  • MAY 8 (Monday): Ruth Bowdish, a published author, a licensed chemical-dependency counselor, a life coach and managing director for On Demand Healthcare. Bowdish will speak on “The Science of Happiness: A Look at Positive Psychology in the Service of Others.”
  • MAY 9 (Tuesday): Tony Porter, author, educator and CEO of A Call to Men, a national nonprofit that promotes healthy, respectful manhood in order to prevent gender-based violence and discrimination and to advance a culture of equity and inclusivity. Porter will talk about “Promoting Healthy Manhood and Gender Equity.”
