This conference, hosted by Brookview House, Inc., and cosponsored by JDI member Casa Myrna, nvites the public to discuss ways to make these systems work together to benefit survivors of domestic violence. A battered person interfaces with several systems in order to seek help and safety; emergency shelter, legal assistance, law enforcement, the courts, and spiritual support. Even though these entities all seek the best for the survivor, the particular methodologies, messages, and language used by each entity can be confusing and appear to be at cross purposes. JOIN Community advocates, faith communities, families, practitioners, policy makers, legal advocates, educators, consumers and others to inform policy.
