Abuse can happen anywhere, even in faith communities. You probably know someone who has suffered abuse. Pretending that abuse does not exist in “my church, school, community or home” only perpetuates its continuance. Learn what to do and how to help.
The 2020 Virtual Summit on Abuse (November 13) will provide valuable training that will equip and prepare you for when abuse occurs. You can make a difference. The 2020 keynote speaker will be Mary Demuth, author of “WeToo: How the Church can respond redemptively to the sexual abuse crisis.” Click here to learn more about her.
Creating safe churches and communities starts with being informed. Together, we can keep the people in your church, school, camp, and community safe.
