WE Act to end violence against women by encouraging them to learn the warning signs of all types of violence including physical, sexual and emotional abuse. We have asked them to act in their own lives and to support domestic violence shelters and other programs to fight violence against women.
We have developed relationships with California domestic violence programs. We have worked with statewide education programs to raise awareness about the warning signs of all forms of violence against women, including physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
We have worked with organizations dedicated to educating and engaging boys and girls in their teenage years to understand the warning signs of dating violence. Boys are often times left out of the discussion and we have included them as we helped young people navigate dating and relationships in a healthy way.
We used our WomensConference.org website to raise awareness, share stories and provide dynamic content in order to engage our thriving community on behalf of women suffering from the devastating effects of violence.
To reduce the number of women suffering from the devastating impact of all forms of violence against them, here at home and across the world.
