Religious leaders are looking for ways to help end domestic violence in our community.

WCTV's Shonda Knight was at Bethel AME Church in Tallahassee where she emceed the panel's discussion.

1 out every four women in the united states will be a victim of domestic violence. And when the partner who is supposed to love them, abuses them, the victim may turn to the spiritual leader for guidance. That's why the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council put together today's panel discussion.
