What are our basic principles?

  • “Domestic Violence is not primarily about the quality of a relationship but about the quality of a community” (Carol Hageman-White).
  • Intimate partner Violence is not a private matter but a violation of human rights.
  • Everyone can make a difference.
  • Change comes in small steps and takes time.

We  are standing on the shoulders of the experiences and knowledge of the movement against violence against women. Our approach is inspired by community organizing and grass roots work in the tradition of Jane Addams and Saul Alinsky.
