Safe Families, Safe Communities: Equipping Clergy to Stop Domestic Violence @ Oakhurst Presbyterian Church
Oct 18 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Men Stopping Violence (MSV) organizes men to create safer communities for women and girls. For 34 years, we’ve partnered with faith communities across metro Atlanta to help accomplish our mission. In this time, we’ve learned that many victims of domestic violence feel safest disclosing that violence to others in their faith community. In addition, many men also turn to their faith communities for support in ending their abuse of family members. “Safe Families, Safe Communities: Equipping Clergy to Stop Domestic Violence,” is based on the reality that faith communities can play a central role in ending domestic violence. This event is designed to build stronger connections between Men Stopping Violence and clergy across metro Atlanta. A stronger relationship provides opportunities for faith communities to access the services MSV offers to men including our 24-week Men’s Education Program. At this event, we’ll cover a basic overview of domestic violence, explain why discussing and addressing domestic violence within your congregation is important, share resources for survivors and batterers, and talk about opportunities for collaboration with Men Stopping Violence to engage men in your congregation and support intervention and prevention needs.

Note: This initial event is geared toward Christian clergy and lay leaders.  Leaders of all faiths are welcome to attend and future trainings will be geared towards other faith communities.

Who Should Come:

Clergy and lay leaders, students, & community members interested in getting their church more active in the movement to end violence against women.
