A Faithful Response to Domestic Violence

Friday, 10:00am | Bridge

In this interactive workshop we will explore what a faithful response to domestic violence looks like in congregation and community settings.

Using an intersectional lens we will begin with a brief training on domestic violence 101. From there we will brainstorm creative, practical, and empowered ways to respond to violence and support Survivors.

What resources do we have? What do we already know? What about Survivors who are Queer? How do we think about violence theologically? How is the Divine calling us to respond?
