I attend CONNECT's monthly interfaith roundatables, which promote discussion on how faith communities can engage with issues related to the body, violence, and gender. These dialogues, which I look forward to weekly, are both accessible and challenging. I am a Director with Reveal NYC, an organization that works with female survivors of domestic violence, and CONNECT has so helpfully provided a broader intellectual framework for the way that we work with our women. CONNECT doesn't just serve the DV population, but also supports and resources an existing network of DV organizations. We are so grateful for them.
CONNECT is amazing! I became acquainted with the organization through their DV 101 course. I am not one to be easily impressed, so it is a big deal for me that I have not only been impressed but continue to admire the work that CONNECT does. CONNECT produces relevant materials and trainings for the general public as well as helps families heal and get better connected to their humanity. I look forward to seeing them grow into a model that will one day be replicated across the nation.
