This publication strives to capture the rich dialogue, successes, lessons learned and strategic questions from Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance, Training and Resource Center’s (TC-TAT) involvement in over 8 years of domestic violence (DV) prevention in faith and spiritual communities.
