First Presbyterian Church sanctuary

Please join the Durham Crisis Response Center and Legal Aid for an engaging and dynamic Community Summit on domestic violence in our community. The goal for this summit is to humanize the domestic violence victim’s experience for the Durham community, its officials, agencies, and first responders, while highlighting areas in which we can improve our collective response to survivors. It is our hope that through a transparent and productive community dialogue, citizens and leaders in Durham can work collaboratively to raise awareness about the realities of domestic violence, improve the victims’ experience, and make Durham a safer place for everyone to live.
