You've been locked up for domestic violence.

You're released back to your community.

"It's a very powerful process," says Amy Brooks, Victim Advocacy Coordinator, "but it's very moving."

Volunteer training for the DVRC is taking place Friday and Saturday, and again in September.  Men as Peacemakers has more information.
