National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
May 23, 2012

Since being a member of the Board of Directors for NCADV, I have been a witness to the inner workings of this amazing agency. Founded by women of color and Native women in the 1970s, NCADV was established as a grassroots initiative to ensure that those most marginalized have a space for collaboration and and to be heard in addressing the violence in our lives.

These people are women, GLBTQ, women of color, native women, women from rural areas, Jewish and Muslim/Arab women. I have met people in my local area of California who have collaborated with NCADV and/or joined our national conferences. Perspectives about NCADV include “NCADV changed my life” and adjectives to describe NCADV and its committed staff are “amazing,” “committed,” and “Inspiring.”

The staff of NCADV under the leadership of their executive director work tirelessly in advocating at the policy level to ensure that laws such as the Violence Against Women Act will be passed, to be a resource for communities, to be technical assistant providers for those working to establish their own culturally aware agencies, and building spaces where people like myself, have a space to collaborate and learn from women who have been involved in the anti-violence movement since the 1970s to those who will redefine the next generation of anti-violence movement advocacy.

I am proud to be a member of the Board of Directors. But I too, like those I have met who have worked with NCADV in a variety of capacities feel that NCADV changed my life by offering me a space to learn even more about advocacy and social change.
