General Assembly is just around the corner, and whether or not you are attending in person, it is critical to know about two important resolutions about domestic and intimate partner violence and women peacemakers. DSF Discover is thrilled to provide TWO trainings will prepare you.
How do you respond to domestic violence in your communities? Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence affects our communities at alarming rates – and we will be voting at General Assembly about a resolution to STOP this violence and to provide education, awareness, and action opportunities to Christian leaders. If we do our part as Disciples, we will have a significant role in reducing domestic and intimate partner violence in our lifetimes. We invite you to get started now with a free 1-hour workshop with Courtney Armento, one of the authors of GA 1928. In the training Don’t Say the Wrong Thing: What You Need to Know about Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence, discover how domestic /intimate partner violence is hiding in plain sight and how you can respond sensitively.
Join us on Thursday, July 11 at 4 Pacific / 7 Eastern. Registration is free, and replays are available with registration: https://www.dsf.edu/domestic-violence
What is the best way to become a peacemaker? One way is to support FEMALE peacemakers. Why are women so important in the process of global peacemaking? Studies show that when women and non-binary people are included at the beginning of a peacemaking process, it is much more likely to be long lasting and successful. You deserve to be informed about GA 1930. Find out how YOU can support female peacemaking around the world and become a peacemaker in your local community.
