Faith communities engaged in ending child sexual abuse
Thursday, July 18, 2013
11 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Time
(2 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern)
Faith communities offer a unique opportunity to engage survivors, families and communities in ending child sexual abuse. Well beyond not asking survivors to “forgive and forget” and effectively responding to faith leaders accused of perpetrating, some faith communities are offering new avenues towards healing and accountability. Learn about these new approaches and how others can incorporate elements of the programs, tools and resources already developed during this first web conference of the 2013-2014 Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series!
