The Meaningful Voices Book Club is designed to foster conversations between advocates, clergy, seminary students, and lay leaders on the role of faith in our lives, the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence and the ramifications of violence on individuals, our faith communities, and the wider culture. The online book discussions, blogs and chats will also increase awareness of what individuals can do to support victims and respond effectively and sensitively to victims/survivors, their families, and abusers. By reading and talking about significant books, we can create an international discussion for those doing this important work.
