A Sacred Journey Grant was awarded to CONNECT in 2015 by Fellowship in Prayer to support their program, CONNECT Faith, which offers training, support, referrals and education to religious leaders of all faiths equipping them to respond appropriately when approached by congregants struggling with issues of gender violence, family violence and child abuse.
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.
