The program is about coming together as a community in solidarity with victims/survivors of domestic violence.
Rev. Davis began "Unleashing the Voices" on the campus of Princeton Theological Seminary two years ago to challenge faith communities and her colleagues, to begin the task of transforming 'sacred space' into 'safe space' for victims/survivors to navigate healing. The faith community is not exempt from domestic violence, whether a wife or a pastor or congregant -- silence breeds complicity and does not make the pain go away.
During the service, attendees create a memorial wreath that is later donated to an agency providing direct services to victims/survivors. In the past, wreaths have been given to Woman Space, in Trenton, and the JBWS, in Morristown. As these wreaths hang in these agencies, lifting them in prayer, it demonstrates to survivors that they are not alone.
