In 2017, Fellowship in Prayer awarded a Sacred Journey Grant to CONNECT to support them hosting a CONNECT Faith Partner Convening Day; two Interfaith Breakfasts; and a two-day training for faith leaders, Responding to Domestic Violence in Communities of Faith.
CONNECT is dedicated to preventing interpersonal violence and promoting gender justice. By building partnerships with individuals and communities, CONNECT strives to help change the beliefs, behaviors and institutions that perpetuate violence. Through legal empowerment, grassroots mobilization and transformative education, CONNECT seeks to create safe families and peaceful communities.
