Programs: Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund is a national non-profit organization committed to mobilizing concerned individuals, allied professionals, women's rights, civil rights, and other social justice organizations, and children's groups to join the campaign through public education/prevention campaigns, public policy reform, model training, advocacy programs, and organizing. Our programs include the "There's No Excuse for Domestic Violence," the first-ever national public education campaign and community organizing project on domestic violence. This program is currently encouraging men to get involved by talking to the young men and boys in their lives about violence against women. The National Health Initiative on Domestic Violence trains health care providers to understand and intervene, and coordinates comprehensive statewide responses to the issue. The Judicial Education Project teaches judges to better understand how their decisions can play a critical role in prevention. The Child Welfare Project raises awareness about the integral links between child abuse and domestic violence and serves the often silent victims of abuse - children. The National Workplace Resource Center on Domestic Violence disseminates information and develops workplace policies on domestic violence. The Battered Immigrant Women's Rights Project improves the legal rights of battered immigrant women. The International Project fosters exchange with partners in China, India, Mexico and Russia to improve health and safety of women and children. The Public Action Project encourages citizen's in every community to get involved in the movement to end abuse.
