Special Guest Speaker

Dr. Eboné Barnes, Ed.D.
Transformational Motivational Speaker

Passionate, transformational, motivational speaker, Dr. Eboné M. Barnes works with individuals and organizations to escalate effective, confident communication and give voice to the voiceless.  She leads with love, transparency, and truth.

Dr. Barnes received a Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership and Development from Cornerstone University, Master of Science in Communications from Grand Valley State University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Aquinas College. With nearly thirty years of work in the education industry she is committed to being a lifetime learner and facilitating learning for others. She is fearlessly vulnerable in communicating and sharing her personal abortion story in hopes that it helps others choose life, choose healing, and obliterate the strangling grasp of an abortion secret.

Dr. Barnes is a mother to five adult children and proud grandparent to 4 beautiful grandchildren. Her love for life and being a voice to the voiceless fuels her passion for helping women navigate life choices when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. Dr. Barnes’ dissertation “A Silent Crisis: Lived Experiences of Post-Abortive Women in the African-American Church” sought to understand the lived experiences of Christian, African American women who are post abortive to illustrate the need for unplanned pregnancy and post-abortion ministries within the African American church.
