Sexual and domestic violence affects victims in body, mind, AND spirit. For rural victims, faith leaders and faith communities are sometimes the most important element in their understanding of their situation and their responses to it. Many victims and survivors turn to their faith communties for help and hope. Even in cases in which a victim does not disclose to anyone, a faith community could be an avenue for accessing resources or information (for example, from a poster in the restroom, a hotline number in the weekly bulletin, or a brochure in the library). As trusted leaders in the community, faith leaders are uniquely located to respond to victims of sexual and domestic violence. A partnership with local domestic and sexual violence service providers can help to ensure that the responses of faith leaders to victims are safe and empowering. In this webinar, we’ll dig deeper into this notion of partnership, name barriers and challenges, and explore how advcoates and faith leaders can build and strengthen trusting partnerships. We’ll also look at some resources that Safe Havens has recently developed. The goal is to minimize the ways in which faith is a barrier to safety and maximize the ways in which faith is a resource.
