Mission Statement

“To advance a coordinated, multi-sectoral, culturally competent restorative justice response to violence against women and children by:
• Being a resource to religious leaders, institutions and faith communities as they hold offenders accountable and ensure the safety and empowerment of victims/survivors by offering opportunity for truth telling and healing of individuals and families
• To challenge from a theological perspective patriarchal traditions and other root causes of intimate partner abuse and violence which destroys the dignity of women, children and men; and
• To encourage the promotion of scriptural and theological teachings that encourage intimate relationships that set people free to live their full potential in supportive unions.”
