Faith Communities in Action (FCIA) Domestic Violence Prevention Task Force

Mission

The Faith Communities in Action (FCIA) Domestic Violence Prevention Task Force is composed of members from diverse religious and secular backgrounds who believe that violence and abuse in intimate and familial relationships are deeply antithetical to the values of faith communities in Fairfax County.  The countywide task force seeks to:

  • Raise awareness about the prevalence and impact of family abuse;
  • Educate about domestic abuse and the various roles in a coordinated community response;
  • Inspire and empower communities and their leadership to support survivors of abuse and eliminate domestic violence.

Meetings

The FCIA Domestic Violence Prevention Task Force meets the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Fairfax County Government Center Offices, Room 232.

The focus of our meetings is education, information sharing and faith community collaboration. Our goals are to give the members the tools they need to go back to their faith community and increase the awareness of Domestic Violence issues and actively pursue initiatives to assist victims and decrease the incidence of domestic violence. We work together to develop best practices and determine how to best inform and involve faith communities regarding domestic violence prevention practices and support services available. The task force members provide insight on how to engage faith communities with this problem.
