Prevention Works


Support $15 million in ongoing funding to prevent sexual and domestic violence!

Against a design of purple, blue, and periwinkle triangles, the State of California is shown in semi-translucent white. Next to it, to the right, white text reads, "Support Sexual & Domestic Violence Prevention Funding". In the top right-hand corner, "#PreventionWorks" is shown in white.   At the bottom of the image are the logos for ValorCalifornia (a ValorUS program) and the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence. Our prevention budget request needs your support! The Partnership is continuing our collaboration with ValorCalifornia, a program of ValorUS, in advocating for $15 million in ongoing prevention funding for sexual and domestic violence.

This pandemic has brought light to a crisis within a crisis – the stressors and dynamics related to COVID-19 have increased the rates and severity of domestic violence and sexual abuse. This does not need to be an inevitable element of our state’s reality, and without an ongoing state investment in prevention, high rates of tragedy and trauma will persist. Now is the time to prioritize prevention and build upon the existing groundwork and momentum to end sexual and domestic violence.

Supported by a wide range of organizations in the movement to end sexual & domestic violence:
