Over the past 35 years DAWN has grown to create a system of crisis response that offers safety and holistic support to survivors and their children, but the growing rates of reported occurrences of domestic violence necessitates more than a crisis response. It is time to apply our knowledge to keep people out of domestic violence situations. We know that if we intervene earlier, our work has broader impact; it touches more people, and is more humane. When survivors have access to resources and choices, outcomes for them and their children are superior.
In your own way, you can contribute to advancing our shared vision of safe, just, and equitable communities for everyone.
We know that together we form a rich community of committed advocates applying our collective wisdom and expertise to our shared task of advancing the safety and healing of victims, survivors and their families. This partnership offers the opportunity to expand our community of allies—to use our strength to bridge differences and chart a path together for the future. As an ally for social change, you are helping to build this future by shaping interpersonal violence prevention work, increasing community awareness, and reducing barriers for survivors to access safety.
DAWN’s growth over the past 35 years can only be attributed to the incredible partnerships formed with allies and partners, like you. We are stronger when we work together. This partnership, this connection embodies our vibrant and powerful work—social change that needs all of us actively participating to bring about our shared vision of safe, just, and equitable communities for everyone.
