Dozens of faith leaders attend training


The Griffin Judicial Circuit Domestic Violence Task Force held a community-wide training on domestic violence March 24 at the Fayette Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the training was to reach out to leaders of the faith community, educate them about the dynamics of domestic violence and raise their awareness of available resources in the community they can utilize.

Training facilitator Mike Mertz spoke to an estimated 40 local faith leaders who attended including pastors, ministers, and other church staff.
