New Beginnings - Without Violence and Abuse
New Beginnings collaborates and educates to end sexual, domestic and stalking violence, advocates for and empowers individuals in a non-judgmental manner, and works toward social change by promoting an effective community response.
We are committed to confronting domestic and sexual violence by: 1) providing direct services and support to victims of violence; 2) educating women about the choices they have; and 3) educating the community about the history, causes, and methods of confronting domestic and sexual violence.
It is our belief that violence has its historical roots in a hierarchical structure that promotes inequality, thereby promoting violence. As a result, we at New Beginnings are committed to the convictions of a nonhierarchical flat structure and choose to make all our decisions through the process of consensus, which emulates this view.
