The public is invited to participate in a free webinar Wednesday, April 3, on "Exploring the Intersections of Maternal Health & Domestic Violence." The webinarfrom 3-4 p.m. ET is sponsored by Healthy Families, Healthy Planet (HFHP).
Domestic violence is a global pandemic that affects women's bodily integration and their ability to thrive. When a pregnant woman suffers partner violence, she may suffer injury, miscarriage or even death. As a denomination, United Methodists are called to respond to both domestic violence and maternal health by promoting healthy relationships and pregnancies for all.
Webinar speakers will be:
- Julie Taylor, United Methodist Women executive secretary for Children, Youth & Family Advocacy;
- Amee Paparella, General Board of Church & Society director of Women's Advocacy; and
- Katie Kraft, HFHP Advocacy & Communications associate.
The webinar will suggest ways you can take action in your community.
This webinar is free and open to the public.
Register here by April 2.
