I was very excited to see almost 200 people from several different faith communities ready to spend a day discussing and learning about the persistent and perplexing issue of sexual violence in faith communities. I was also impressed with the introduction to the guest speakers. Keynote speaker Marie Fortune has been a driving force behind church responses to sexual violence since I was a toddler (and I’m not that young). I can’t imagine how hard her work would have been four decades ago.
