Faith-Based Training Initiative

For faith leaders in our County, PLC’s professional staff educates and opens a dialogue about domestic violence, dating violence and family violence. Our culturally relevant training teaches faith leaders to:

  • identify signs of abuse,
  • support and guide congregants experiencing or witnessing abuse,
  • make appropriate referrals to and build partnerships with community organizations that can help, and
  • become proactive in working to prevent all forms of abuse and victimization.
Community-Based Bystander Prevention Education

At PLC community events, attendees learn intervention strategies, practices and resources needed to keep survivors safe. Our training:

  • offers an education and prevention strategy targeting the African American community and that highlights culturally-specific issues related to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault,
  • increases the community’s capacity to provide culturally-specific support for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and
  • increase awareness of local resources to address domestic violence and sexual assault.
