Welcome to Walking Into A New (WIANL) Life-Victim to Victorious! Whether you’re a victim, survivor, transitioning or know someone who is, we appreciate your support and celebrate your efforts in making a positive and courageous step towards personal and professional freedom. We invite you to explore our innovative means of providing holistic education and the encouragement of entrepreneurship.

WIANL’s mission is to help stop domestic violence and support stabilizing victims. We conduct a thorough assessment of one’s knowledge, skills and abilities, implement training for microenterprise development and guide them on a path of self sufficiency and self empowerment.

We are in the process of updating our site to share the many things we all can do to end domestic violence and stabilize victims.  Shelby County has over 4,00 reported cases of domestic violence and a newly created specific court to adjudicate this horrific crime. With this in mind, we work beyond domestic violence month increase awareness and effect change. Come join us as we host……

Domestic Violence victim advocacy organizations, Walking Into A New Life and Mpact Community Outreach’s There’s A Way Out, have partnered to address domestic violence from a man’s perspective. This innovative brunch will be featuring internationally renowned educator, lecturer, author and keynote speaker, Tony Porter of “A Call to Men” – Committed to ending domestic violence against women. While the primary focus is on the support and elevation of men, this event is free and open to the public, with women strongly being encouraged to attend, bring ideas and show their support.

Tony Porter is the Co-Founder of “A Call To Men”, a national organization with an international presence which challenges men to reconsider their long held beliefs about women, in an effort to create a more just society. We will examine the role of well meaning men in domestic and sexual violence prevention. The focus of the presentation will include various concepts of healthy manhood in the development of men and boys.

Upcoming initiatives and strategies will be addressed. Encouraging everyone to come out and take part in an interactive exchange of ideas to assist in working with and embracing the men within our community.  For more information, R.S.V.P., email us at info@wianl.org or call Joyce Parkinson at 901-654-9342.
