INCREASING SAFETY FOR INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES SINCE 1979
In the Spotlight
Check out Outreach and Education intern Brandi's third blog in our series on the connection between public health and the prevention of domestic violence. This blog focuses on community and societal-level risk and protective factors for domestic violence. We're always grateful to have the energy and knowledge of our interns to share.
Staff recently spent time reflecting on Sojourner and our goals with an all-day staff retreat. We considered how far we’ve come in the last 40 years and where we are heading in the years to come. It was wonderful to reconnect after the isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit our blog to read more about staff's experience and words shared by our Executive Director Laura Sisterman.
