Pastor Tony Lowden serves as the Executive Director of the Federal Interagency Council on Crime Prevention and Improving Reentry. In his role, he travels to different communities to learn how to best address issues to prevent crime, including domestic violence.

Growing up in a home where he was exposed to domestic violence, Tony draws from his past to connect with those who need help today. In this episode, Tony shares some of his experiences and offers suggestions for communities to tackle this issue. In the past, Tony has served as a pastor at President Jimmy Carter’s church, in Georgia, where he led discussion about family values and setting good role models.
