DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence
DCCADV: The District of Columbia's Domestic Violence Coalition
DCCADV is the federally-recognized statewide coalition of domestic violence programs, organizations and individuals organized to ensure the elimination of domestic violence in the District of Columbia.
We are a resource for the thousands of adults and children experiencing domestic violence in the District each year, as well as the local organizations that serve them. The Coalition offers support and services for today, and education, advocacy and leadership to shape a violence-free future for families in the District of Columbia.
Our work applies a framework for identifying social, economic, cultural, political and legal factors that have critical implications for those affected by violence, oppression, subordination and discrimination. We leverage our expertise to expand community activism, deepen community awareness surrounding poverty caused by domestic violence and address systems gaps by promoting sound and effective public policy initiatives.
