SPIRITUAL ABUSE: Creating Victim-Centered Partnerships & Safe Spaces With Faith Communities
I invite you to join me on Mon., May 22 at 3:30 to hear me talk about the importance of DV advocacy and faith communities to partner together to create greater safety for faith-practicing victims. As First Responders to domestic violence, our faith leaders need training to be a resource and not a roadblock for victims who come to them for support and guidance.
Spiritual Abuse: Allyships with Faith Communities with Trauma-Informed Faith Leaders
Thank you to all who connected with us at our PROJECT #RaiseAwareness table and at the break-out session (see above). We came away from this conference inspired, awed and energized to continue raising awareness. We’ll be connecting with all who shared their email to see if your organization or community has interest in screening No Ordinary Love. It’s not too early to think about a #DVAM event showing this impactful film and talking with the audience about domestic violence.
To all the domestic violence advocates - be bold and step into the faith community space to create relationships so together we can better serve victims of domestic violence. Host a training specifically for faith leaders so in their role as first responders they will be trauma-informed.
“You are a very effortless speaker, it comes naturally to you. You’re in command, you’re captivating.”
