Odyssey Fellow, Staci Plonsky, coordinated a special screening of Healing the Healers: Domestic Violence in Brevard County, Florida to gather for the first time faith leaders, DV advocates, survivors, and local law enforcement to discuss how to cooperatively respond to domestic violence in Brevard County. Together, the group talked about the complex issues that emerge when a faith leader learns of abuse within a family in a congregation. What are “do’s” and “don’t’s” for clergy on this issue? Who do clergy call when they’re unsure?
