Introducing WHOLE Disciples: Resources for Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention

May 25, 2021

WHOLE Disciples seeks to provide education for the denomination on the prevalence and subversiveness of domestic and intimate partner violence in our communities. Resolution GA-1928, adopted in 2019, calls on Disciples to recognize their role in preventing domestic violence and to care for those who are suffering from trauma. WHOLE Disciples offers clergy and laity the tools to offer a compassionate and safe response to people who are often suffering in silence. Join us on May 25th at 6pm ET / 3pm PT to learn more about the educational offerings from WHOLE Disciples and why awareness, prevention, and trauma-informed care are so greatly needed in our society.
