Our House Too: How Faith Communities Can Support Survivors of Domestic Abuse in Their Congregation @ Wayland Public Safety Building

Please join the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable for “Our House Too: How Faith Communities Can Support Survivors of Domestic Abuse in Their Congregations. This program is designed for clergy, members of social action/social justice committees, caring communities, and anyone who wants to make a difference in their congregations.

The workshop will help participants learn how to recognize abuse and understand the unique role that faith communities can play in offering support and
connecting adults and teens to resources. Participants will leave with a better understanding of domestic abuse and action items they can carry out in their own congregations.

The first workshop will take place on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, from 3-4:30pm in the Community Meeting Room of the Wayland Public Safety Building, 38 Cochituate Road, Wayland. For those who prefer an evening workshop, the identical program will also be offered on Tuesday evening November 19, 2019 from 7-8:30 PM at First Parish in Wayland, 225 Boston Post Road, Wayland.

Roundtable board members from REACH Beyond Domestic Violence and Journey to Safety, the Jewish Family and Children’ s Service response to domestic abuse, will lead the workshop and discussions. The workshop will highlight how important it is for people in faith communities to learn and talk about domestic abuse, clearly sending the message that abuse happens in “Our House Too.”
