Our membership works tirelessly across the state to help survivors towards safety and freedom. Our work includes visionary leadership, supporting our member programs, and engaging the public to play a role in ending domestic and sexual violence.

Mission

The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence mobilizes our member programs and allies to end domestic violence through advocacy and action for social change.

Theory of Change

We are working to create a world where all people can live and love freely without fear because living a life free of violence is a basic human right. Our Theory of Change is a visual representation of the path we are following to create the changes we seek. To learn more, please check out our Theory of Change Frequently Asked Questions.

Principles of Unity

The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence affirms the right of each person to live without fear or the threat of violence. We oppose the use of violence as a means of control. We recognize that oppression in the form of racism, sexism, classism, anti-Semitism, ageism, imperialism, heterosexism, and oppression of persons with disabilities, creates a climate of supremacy and ownership which enables domestic and sexual violence. We recognize that religious beliefs and practices are matters of personal conscience and individual choice. Therefore, no member shall promote or discourage a particular religious belief in the course of her/his work. We believe that all women have the right to autonomy and self-determination regarding all sexual and reproductive matters, lifestyles, finances, education and employment. We encourage the leadership of women in making policy and program decisions.

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from our member programs and communities across the state.
