On October 4, 2001, The Arizona Republic featured the editorial "Faith Finds Help for Abuse Victims" which stated that "Religious leaders are frequently the first persons a victim approaches for help, yet they are often poorly equipped to deal with the realities of abuse... The Religious Response to Domestic Violence, an interfaith task force drawn from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim congregations, seeks to change the climate of congregations so that victims find information, safety, and support in their faith communities; and abusers hear a strong message that abuse is not acceptable and will not be tolerated."
