Adult Men & Women Class
Sheritha Smith
Welcome to the  No More Violence Youth Convention (NMVYC) welcome you the Family Domestic Violence.  Thank you for visiting,  NMVYC is designed to empower families to take action at the local, state, and national level to ensure safety, justice, accountablity and healing for people who lives are affected by violent relationships. Sheritha Smith  comes as a Advocate and a Instructor for the Family Domestic Violence Program with the experience of losing her sister and niece both killed the same day in a horriable and tragic loss that has impacted the family.  Sheritha has served three years of being the NMVYC Instructor and six years of being a member of the No More Violence Organization serving and helping other families in need. 
Sheritha Smith will never forget the effect that domestic violence can have when it rears its ugly head. Smith and her children have experienced it firsthand.
On August 7, 2013 her sister, Toya Smith and her niece, Tasmia Smith, were murdered by someone they both knew. Since that time Smith has become an advocate against domestic violence. Her goal is to take every opportunity provided to bring awareness and promote prevention against what she calls “an epidemic.”
Smith said the boys are older now, when the event happened Devante (the oldest) had just registered for his senior year at Duncanville High School. He is now in his second year of College at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
Devin (the middle) was in the eighth grade at Kennemer Middle School and he is now a junior at Duncanville High School where he plays football. Devvon (the youngest) was a few weeks from beginning kindergarten when the murders occurred and he is now a third grader.
“They are your typical teenagers, of course and I just try to keep them busy and involved in positivity because so much of their innocence was stolen during this tragedy,” Smith said.

Data collected in 2005 found that women experience two million injuries from partner violence each year.
