Who We Are

The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (the Partnership) is California’s recognized domestic violence coalition, representing over 1,000 advocates, organizations and allied groups throughout the state. Through our public policy, communications and capacity-building efforts, we align prevention and intervention strategies to advance social change. We believe that by sharing expertise, advocates and policy-makers can end domestic violence. For nearly 40 years, we have inspired, informed and connected all those concerned with this issue, because together we’re stronger.

Solidarity with Afghanistan
Explore Resources and Get Involved

The Partnership stands in solidarity with those living through the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. Our movement knows that people would not leave their homes unless their homes were no longer safe. As refugees seek asylum and safety—especially women and children who face higher rates of violence during conflict and war—we encourage you to get involved using the links below. Let’s come together in Beloved Community to help our neighbors escape violence.
