In the United States, a woman is assaulted every 9 seconds. Every 45 seconds, a man or woman is sexually assaulted. Every year, around 4000 women die from abuse. How can you be a part of the solution?
On February 23, Metro will be hosting specialized training from our denomination called, AVA (Advocacy for Victims of Abuse) designed to help people recognize physical and sexual abuse, support the victims of abuse, and to provide appropriate language for advocates and survivors alike with the goal of making our communities safe and healthy.
The training will take place at Ebenezer Baptist Church (216 4th Street in Englewood) from 9am to 5pm. To register, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/metro-community-church-advocacy-for-victims-of-abuse-training-tickets-55246501774.
