"What is faith if it is not translated into action?" Mohandas Gandhi
Unfortunately, domestic violence (DV) knows no boundaries – not even religion. Many who are experiencing DV turn to their faith community as a sanctuary, a safe haven. For this reason, The Prevention Project offers training and information sessions to faith groups:
- To promote a better understanding of the dynamics of abusive relationships.
- To explain how religion is sometimes used as a tactic of abuse.
- To share how we can all work together to support victims of domestic violence.
