Religions for Peace Australia invites people of faith in Australia involved in working with or thinking of working with faith communities/ faith leaders on the prevention of family violence to an informal Zoom gathering.

Domestic abuse can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, gender or religion.
Every day, millions of people are directly impacted by domestic violence.

In the context of domestic violence, religious actors and institutions can both help and harm — but they are not neutral.

Religions for Peace Australia invites people of faith in Australia involved in working with or thinking of working with faith communities/ faith leaders on the prevention of family violence to an informal Zoom gathering.

The purpose of this meeting encompasses states and territories and their work in this area; it is meet and fitting that faith participants share our practices in order to bring about peace in the home, peace in the society and thereafter, peace in the nation.
