Faith-Based Organization Webinar: Violence Prevention – How Can Faith Leaders Save Lives

August 27, 2020 @ 9:00 am

Webinar logoThis webinar continues a conversation on ways for Faith Leaders to assist the world to shift to a culture of prevention that will save thousands of lives, protect millions of women and save hundreds of millions of children from violence. World leaders have committed at the UNGA to significant reductions in violence for Agenda 2030. Solutions that tackle the roots of violence have been proven to reduce violence by 50%. How can Faith Leaders use their influence to spread the word? How can Faith Leaders partner with UN agencies? How can Faith Leaders partner with city leaders determined to achieve a world safer from violent crime?
