Lunch & Learn: Domestic Violence

Studies show that victims of abuse often reach out to faith leaders first when seeking assistance. When congregations partner with community agencies, like One Place, churches can be a place of support and healing for survivors and their children. Join us for lunch and learn more about domestic abuse and how to minister to families impacted by violence. The panel discussion will be moderated by attorney Greg Zarzaur of Zarzaur, Mujumdar, and Debrosse.

Panel includes:
Catherine Alexander-Wright, LICSW
Director of Domestic Violence Service, YWCA Central Alabama

Rev. Keith Thompson
Senior Pastor, Canterbury United Methodist Church

Ginny Willings
Community Relations Coordinator, BRASFIELD & GORRIE, L.L.C.
Board of Directors, One Place Family Justice Center

Allison L. Dearing
Executive Director, One Place Metro Alabama Family Justice Center
