Spring Luncheon with Marilyn Van Derbur

Please join us at our Spring Luncheon featuring guest speaker Marilyn Van Derbur.

Marilyn is a former Miss America and the author of Miss America By Day, which chronicles her journey to becoming a survivor of sexual abuse by her millionaire father.

Marilyn Van Derbur was crowned Miss America while a student at the University of Colorado. After she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, she went on to become a successful motivational speaker. She was named “Outstanding Woman Speaker in America,” inducted into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame, and was the first woman given the highest speaking award possible by the National Speakers Association. She has produced many films, two of which have won national and international awards.

As a childhood incest survivor, she speaks nationwide about sexual abuse prevention and recovery. Additionally, she has devoted much of her adult life to raising national awareness and understanding of sexual abuse and its long-term effects. In 1993, she co-founded two national not-for-profit organizations, the American Coalition for Abuse Awareness and One Voice, dedicated to public education and strengthening laws protecting victims of sexual abuse.
