Special Collection on May 10 for The Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence
According to the CDC, one in four women will be the victim of severe physical intimate partner violence in her lifetime. The Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCADV) is a coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to preventing and ending intimate partner violence. They work to support the empowerment of victims of domestic violence and their children through access to services and legal remedies. DCADV also seeks to change the societal conditions that support sexism, racism, homophobia, and other oppressions and which contribute to the continued presence of physical, emotional, and sexual violence in intimate relationships.
DCADV engages in a wide variety of activities that encompass public education, training, prevention, and systems advocacy. DCADV is able to work closely with the justice, health care, education, advocacy, and social service communities to create effective policies and programs that serve the interests of victims and their children in Delaware.
