Imams Training: Preventing and Responding to Domestic Violence
April 16, 2016
On April 16 and 17, 2016, KARAMAH will be offering a legal training for imams on how to prevent and respond to domestic violence. The training is part of a two-day training workshop hosted by Peaceful Families Project and United Muslim Relief.
The workshop seeks to educate imams and religious leaders on Islamic considerations in U.S. courts. Areas covered will include marriage & divorce laws, mahr, and protective orders. This training is meant for imams who are sensitive to the existence of domestic violence among Muslim communities, like other faith groups, and hope to become vocal catalysts for anti-abuse advocacy.
Successful participants will better understand the dynamics of domestic violence and have new tools for responding to the complex and challenging cases that they may face as leaders. In addition, participants will identify ways in which they may support each other in their efforts to deal with the ramifications of domestic violence in their respective communities.
If you would like to attend the training on your own expense, the fee is $425, not including lodging and travel fees.
