The Guibord Center invites you to use Dr. Amy-Jill Levine’s “The Bible, Women and Violence” video as a topic for further conversations
Get resources for victims in every single public space
including in the back of the stalls in the women’s bathrooms (so when women use the facility, they can discreetly pull off a little number and know who to call).Two flyers are available left, both in English and Spanish, one with tear-off strips, one without.

Give clergy in-depth instructions on how to deal with questions of domestic abuse.
Please see the referrals list and especially note FaithTrust Institute, a national, multifaith, multicultural training and education organization with global reach working to end sexual and domestic violence. Founded in 1977 by the Rev. Dr. Marie M. Fortune, FaithTrust Institute offers a wide range of services and resources, including training, consulting and educational materials. They provide communities and advocates with the tools and knowledge they need to address the religious and cultural issues related to abuse. They work with many communities, including Asian and Pacific Islander, Buddhist, Jewish, Latino/a, Muslim, Black, Anglo, Indigenous, Protestant and Roman Catholic.
Make sure clergy contact the local mental health association or referral list here to learn who the (appropriate) professionals are and how to refer to them.
Urge police and clergy to work together.
Get better funding and better protection for women’s shelters.
Please look at organizations on the Help and Resources page who advocate for such funding.
Lobby for anger management programs in prisons.
Get more support for families – and not just victims – including families of perpetrators.
Get our country’s priorities straight. LOBBY FOR FUNDING. PRAY. VOTE.
MAKE OTHER PEOPLE CARE!
“The very fact that you (The Guibord Center) have invited me to give this talk and that you (the audience) have shown up on a beautiful afternoon when you could be playing golf or heaven knows what and you are coming to listen to a talk on the Bible and domestic violence, suggests to me that there are people here in Los Angeles who care about this. MAKE OTHER PEOPLE CARE!“Because it is in every family, in every neighborhood, and the more people who care, the more resources the victims will have, the more programs the perpetrators will be able to enter, and the more likely it is that we will be able to at least make some sort of improvement. “Will we be able to stop it all? Of course not, but can we cut the rate? Absolutely! The fact that you are here so encourages me. Thank you so much!” -Dr. Amy-Jill Levine
This part of the conversation needs to continue. We thank Dr. Amy Jill Levine for her leadership and all those who are involved in helping to curb and eradicate this violence and the attitudes that perpetuate it. Please share the video and whatever resources are helpful. Please return to this website to learn what else we are doing to prevent domestic violence as Faithful Responses to Violence against Women and Girls.
