Coalition Building, Neighborhood Association Work and Community Organizing
We work to engage community members in discussions about the effects of family violence on family members and the community as a whole. We are training them to know what to expect from law enforcement in terms of laws, safety, protections, resources and their rights which they in turn will teach other community residents. We have learned that most survivors of family violence seek help with those people closest to them, therefore it is imperative we build a community consciousness of awareness, accountability and response. This way that community member, will know what to say, how to respond, and where to send survivors of family violence for the appropriate help and support.
