All are invited to attend this online Lunch & Learn! This month, we will host Raeven Fields, a Violence Prevention Specialist at Hopeful Horizons. Violence has become a problem for small communities as well as large cities. Helping young men and women develop skills to avoid violence, in addition to working to empower and support themselves, is a cornerstone of the work that Raeven Fields and Hopeful Horizons provide for those in our community.

 

Hopeful Horizons is the local children’s advocacy, domestic violence and rape crisis center serving Beaufort, Jasper, Colleton, Hampton and Allendale counties. In addition to direct care services, Hopeful Horizons provides educational programs for youth, parents/families, professionals, and anyone seeking assistance in their scope of care.

 

Raevin Fields was born & raised in Bluffton, SC. She previously attended South Carolina State University, where she studied Psychology and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in May of 2017 and is now currently enrolled in an Advanced Standing Master of Social Work program with Walden University to obtain an MSW in children & family therapy.

All Saints Episcopal Church Hosts a Virtual Lunch & Learn Event

with the All Saints Sacred Ground Ministry

Thursday, May 26

Noon

 

“He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?”    

Micah 6:8

 

Have you heard about Sacred Ground? Maybe you are interested, but have questions? Join us for this Virtual Lunch and Learn to hear from your fellow parishioners who have taken the course, and how it has helped and educated them in their daily lives.

 

All Saints has offered two successful Sacred Ground teaching series. There are several small groups that meet twice a month to learn more about the history of race in America, including those of Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American as they intersect with European American histories. We’ll share stories and experiences of race, and learn how to grow in your commitment to racial justice.

 

The Sacred Ground program meets every other week for 11 sessions starting in October.  We offer both day and evening as well as in-person and zoom sessions.

All Saints Episcopal Church Hosts a Virtual Lunch & Learn Event

with the Lowcountry Human Trafficking Task Force

 

Are you surprised to learn that human trafficking is a problem in the Lowcountry?

 

Lowcountry Human Trafficking Task Force Co-Chairs Michelle Fraser and JoJo Woodward will share information about human trafficking, a complex, insidious crime that infiltrates communities across South Carolina and violates basic human rights. Learn what human trafficking entails, how local, state, and federal task force members collaborate to combat human trafficking in the Lowcountry and beyond. Learn how you can help.

 

Woodward and Fraser were elected as the task force’s co-chairs in April 2021. Both work for Solicitor Duffie Stone and the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, which prosecutes General Sessions-level cases in Beaufort, Jasper, Colleton, Hampton and Allendale counties.

Woodward has more than 30 years of law enforcement experience and is a member of the Solicitor’s Office Career Criminal Unit. Fraser oversees the day-to-day operation of the 14th Circuit Victims Services Center (VSC) and its community partners. She has been a Solicitor’s Office victim advocate for more than 15 years.
