Public Speaking, Training

Writing the book “Grace Goes to Prison” literally changed the direction of my life and work. I now walk alongside of people being released from prison, to help them get access to Resources, Mentoring and Opportunities to become productive, law-abiding citizens in our community.

*Are you looking for an engaging speaker who has enlightened and inspired thousands of people in over 100 speaking engagements to explore issues of social justice?

Here’s my recent TEDx Talk: #PrisonAsALastResort

Here’s what audience members have said:*

Melanie Snyder can be a catalyst for wide-ranging discussion at a deep level. She is honest. She isn’t selling a simple message without thought about the repercussions. She’s real. I can highly recommend her as a speaker and as a fellow human being who is trying to live a life with compassion and dignity and does not think she has all the answers.
~ Pat Hunt, College Chaplain, Retired

Melanie Snyder is an inspiring speaker. She shines a bright light on some very hard truths . . . More importantly, she tells stories of people who have found a better way. Melanie’s exceptional presentation is perfect for any community that values peace and justice.

~ Jane Wiggins, Ph.D., Director, The Campus Suicide Prevention Center of Virginia, James Madison University

If you want to challenge and engage your students, your book club, or your civic or church group, call Melanie! Though she can speak with large groups or small, she creates an intimacy with stories of those she’s interviewed. Melanie does not lecture, rather, she tells stories and pulls you in.
~ Marion Anne Ward, Director of the Adult Degree Program, Mary Baldwin College
