THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. MORE INFORMATION WILL BE FORTHCOMING.
The City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) is proud to host the 14th annual Faith and Spiritual Affairs Conference. The theme this year is Community Response to Violence: Renewing Our Faith in Brotherly Love & Sisterly Affection. The conference will illustrate how faith communities and the City of Philadelphia have partnered to reduce violence and promote togetherness and love throughout our communities.
Violence comes in different forms, and though it affects everyone differently, we all agree it must cease. The purpose of this conference is to build on the strengths and resilience of Philadelphians to address increasing violence in our communities. If violence is doing harm unto one another, then to reduce violence is to heal with one another. This year’s conference is a reminder that Philadelphia was founded on the notion of love and is a call to renew our faith in one another and our ability to effect change.
Speakers and panelists will present on their efforts to respond to violence as both individuals and members of their communities. We invite community members, faith leaders, service providers and all others to partake in this transformative event.
