SUSO presents: Community Partners in Action

Date: 
November 19, 2017 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
Location: 

SUSO is once again stepping up and stepping out to promote peace, and educate our congregation and others about topics related to violence prevention. Our clergy are supportive of all that SUSO has done and continues to do. Many thanks to those who have already enthusiastically offered ideas and suggestions. 

November 19 (Twichell, 11:30am): Debora Rogala, Program Operations Director for Community Partners in Action (one of AHCC’s grant recipients which serves over 8,000 adults and youth each year, focusing on behavioral change and advocating for criminal justice reform), will speak to us about her organization. She will also bring two formerly incarcerated individuals who will share their stories with us. Join us as we explore ways the congregation can help with the re-entry process and welcome formerly incarcerated people back into the community.

We continue to encourage you to become Sandy Hook Promise Leaders, and become knowledgeable about sharing their “Know The Signs” programs with your communities and schools. These are no-cost violence prevention programs, that focus on stopping violence before it occurs. These programs have proven effective, and are student led in the upper grades. Information is available online at ww.sandyhookpromise.org/prevention_programs, or by contacting kdibala@gmail.com.
