All are welcome to join us for this conversation on how we can, together, transform abuse to build cultures of nonviolence through our range of faiths with the shared soul mission to eliminate all forms of violence and promote gender justice.

CONNECT and The Healing Center invite you to gather with NYC faith leaders and social justice advocates to tap into the great potential faith communities have to create safety and offer healing and understand the issues of domestic violence in the context of social justice!

Join us for a full day interactive workshop as we explore the dynamics of child sexual abuse, the link between sexuality and sexual abuse, discuss prevention strategies and methods for healing. CONNECT believes child sexual abuse is a fundamental attack on human dignity, safety and trust. Our desire to protect our children and ourselves from violence is rooted in love and compassion.
