20. We advocate for funding for local domestic violence programs. NNEDV has led the renewal of the lifesaving Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (‪FVPSA‬), which is the only source of federal funding for the nation’s domestic violence shelters and programs. #NNEDV25 #endDV

"NNEDV is grateful to the president, the vice president and the entire Obama Administration for their commitment to addressing many core economic policies, which will help victims maintain stability after fleeing abuse. In order to help survivors in crisis and improve our communities’ responses, we need appropriate investment in ‪‎VAWA‬ and ‪‎VOCA‬ as well,” said NNEDV President Kim Gandy. “We plan to work with the administration and Congress to maintain the investments in the President’s budget and to increase key programs that serve millions of victims each year." #endSA #endDV

19. We fight for victims of crime. NNEDV was instrumental in securing increased funding for the Victims of Crime Act (#VOCA) Fund, bringing the funding to an unprecedented level and helping to meet a desperate need in the field. #endDV #NNEDV25

18. We count. Responding to the need for data on domestic violence programs and victims served, NNEDV started the #DVcounts Census. The Census gathers and reports lifesaving services and the unmet need in the field. It has been mentioned by countless legislators, organizations, & media outlets to highlight the need for increased services for victims. #endDV #NNEDV25

Today is National Black #HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This year’s theme, “I am my brother’s and sister’s keeper. Fight HIV/AIDS!,” strives to decrease stigma and encourage community accountability, but it does not take into account personal safety or concerns for victims of DV. For individuals also experiencing DV, talking about their status can be dangerous; often resulting in increased violence or even death. #NBHAAD #PositivelySafe #DVandHIV

In January, 112 people were killed in suspected intimate partner homicides, including children and bystanders. Men committed 89% of the alleged fatal attacks, and 77% of the victims were women, but experts say these homicides are preventable. #endDV
On the first day of the year, at least nine women in different parts of the country were killed. In each instance, a husband, boyfriend, ex or lover was the suspect.

Talking about the intersection between dating violence and guns is long overdue. Join NNEDV and Cosmopolitan in having this important conversation. "Right now, people convicted of misdemeanor stalking can still buy guns," says Marium Durrani, the public policy attorney at NNEDV, "and stalking is most often an intimate crime. It could be someone you worked with or dated." #endDV #endDVnow #gunsense

17. We develop new tools and resources to better serve survivors. In response to the needs of survivors and advocates, we’ve created ground-breaking toolkits (e.g., Transitional Housing, HIV/AIDS, Agencies Use of Technology, Technology & Confidentiality, and Technology Safety & Privacy for Survivors) and resources (e.g., App Safety Center, WomensLaw.org, Financial Literacy Curriculum, and #DVcounts Census) to better serve survivors, advocates, law enforcement, local programs, state coalitions, and allied organizations. #NNEDV25 #endDV

Introduction

Making domestic violence a national priority.

NNEDV is the leading voice for domestic violence victims and their advocates. As a membership and advocacy organization of state domestic violence coalitions, allied organizations and supportive individuals, NNEDV works closely with its members to understand the ongoing and emerging needs of domestic violence victims and advocacy programs. Then NNEDV makes sure those needs are heard and understood by policymakers at the national level.

Changing the way society responds to domestic violence.

NNEDV offers a range of programs and initiatives to address the complex causes and far-reaching consequences of domestic violence. Through cross-sector collaborations and corporate partnerships, NNEDV offers support to victims of domestic violence who are escaping abusive relationships – and empowers survivors to build new lives.

Strengthening domestic violence advocacy at every level.

NNEDV further supports the fight to end domestic violence by providing state coalitions with critical information and resources. From training and technical assistance to innovative programs and strategic funding, NNEDV brings much-needed resources to local communities. At NNEDV's national and regional meetings, members share information and ideas with NNEDV staff and with each other, working together to develop comprehensive solutions.
