Join members and leaders of local faith communities in discussing better ways to address Sexual Assault & Relationship Abuse in our midst.
Over the past year and a half since the revival of the #MeToo movement, it has become more and more apparent that Gender Based Violence affects people of all walks of life. This means that there are survivors and victims in our own faith communities too.
Sunday March 31, The Changing Role of Women in our Faith Communities, a series of interfaith symposiums, will present Faith to Faith, an Interfaith Forum on Sexual Assault & Relationship Abuse. The forum will feature both a panel and interactive break out sessions regarding how both individuals and faith communities can bring change through recognizing gender-based violence (including domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking), speaking out against it, implementing preventative measures, and supporting survivors.
Faith to Faith is a program of The Brueggeman Center for Dialogue, Xavier University in collaborative with American Jewish Committee (AJC Cincinnati); Crossroads Church; Festival of Faiths Cincinnati; Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion; Interfaith Cincy, Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati; Women Helping Women; the President’s Office of Xavier University; Xavier University’s Center for Faith and Justice and Institute for Spirituality and Social Justice;and the YWCA Greater Cincinnati.
This free event will be held Sunday, March 31, 2019 from 1:30 to 5 p.m. at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, 3101 Clifton Avenue in Cincinnati. Register at eventbrite.com.Faith to Faith 3-31-19
