We have been instrumental in the passage, enactment, implementation and enforcement of strong, comprehensive legislation and public policies that address a range of domestic violence issues. The Partnership’s Policy Advisory Council is a diverse group that helps develop our proactive policy agenda and our responses to additional legislative proposals, considering the interests of a full spectrum of survivors, advocates and communities. Through an annual policy survey and monthly regional and statewide calls, our coalition’s Members inform our coalition’s policy work. Our work includes both legislative solutions and systems change efforts to strengthen prevention and intervention responses to domestic violence.
2019 Priority: $50 Million in Ongoing Funding to Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence
In 2018, Governor Jerry Brown and the California legislature heard your activism, and made the first substantial investment in prevention in state history. As you read this, communities across the state are seeing the impact of $10 million in new funding. We need to maintain this momentum, and increase last year’s allocation to prevent sexual and domestic violence!
The decisions made in Sacramento and Washington DC directly impact domestic violence survivors and programs. Our ability to advance public policies relies upon private donations and membership dues.
