Mission: Our mission is to be a catalyst and advocate for social change, and to ensure safety and justice for victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children.
Results: Our policy team works very closely with the state legislature, and has a long track record of successfully passing over 100 pieces of legislation on behalf of battered women and their children. We also continue to provide training and resources to the community and in 2011 we pioneered a training program to teach domestic violence advocates and prosecutors how to work collaboratively for the benefit of the domestic violence victim throughout the legal process.
Programs: The Partnership utilizes public policy, communications tools, professional training, collaboration, cultural competency and victims resources and referrals to provide member agencies with the tools they need to end domestic violence.
As the state coalition for domestic violence agencies, professionals working in overlapping fields, or members of the general public interested in combating domestic violence, the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence has consistently worked to incorporate the vision of these varied entities into one cohesive voice. The Partnership does not set the focus for advocacy in the movement to end domestic violence. Rather, its leadership listens to the collective voice of its members and then strives to respond in the most effective way, whether through political advocacy, training for the field, search for resources, etc. In a movement that prides itself on being survivor centered, the Partnership as our state coalition models “movement centered” advocacy.
The Partnership is dedicated to its work in such a way as to translate its passion into strategic action. Working with the board and staff we were impressed both by their commitment and effectiveness. The folks there are smart, knowledgeable and HARD working. People effected by domestic violence may never know the name of this organization, but they can count on its steadfast commitment to their safety and well-being.
The California Partnership has always been a pleasure to work with. They’re friendly and professional, and the events they host are very organized and well-attended. They do a lot of good for women all over California, and our company is proud to collaborate with them.
