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.
