Report on Faith Leader Listening Sessions: Community Responses to Domestic and Sexual Violence and Safe Housing for Survivors


The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) partnered with Jewish Women International (JWI) to convene listening sessions and interviews with respected faith leaders from many traditions on July 21st, 22nd, 29th and September 2nd, 2020. As part of NRCDV’s larger goal to increase understanding and collaboration between faith-based organizations and efforts to enhance survivors’ access to safe housing options, these listening sessions and interviews aimed to enhance our awareness of the role faith leaders and communities play or could play at the intersection of faith, spirituality, religion and gender-based violence response and prevention, with a particular emphasis upon increasing safe housing options for survivors.
