Female faith leaders, community leaders, elected officials and police colleagues will gather to send a strong message that Domestic Violence is a rising issue throughout our city and the nation, however, its impact on urban communities is devastating.

The Reverend Dr. Cheryl Anthony, Pastor of Judah International Christian Center and President of Women of Faith Advocating Change was quoted as saying “Domestic Violence in our homes, houses of worship, schools and community at large will not be tolerated or ignored. We are grieved that our sister and community colleague has suffered immensely (physically, emotionally and spiritually) because of a recent vicious domestic attack. We are in prayer for everyone involved.”
