About the District of Columbia Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCCADV)
The DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence was established in 1986 by four women from different local community groups who shared an understanding of the destructiveness, complexity and staggering prevalence of domestic violence. Together they created DCCADV to unify local efforts into a single force to eliminate domestic violence in the District of Columbia.
DCCADV’s mission is to build a community where domestic violence is replaced with human dignity. They advance their mission through advocacy, community education, public policy, technical assistance and training, resource sharing and research.
The Coalition is a resource for the thousands of adults and children experiencing domestic violence in the District each year, as well as the local organizations that serve them. The Coalition offers support and services for today and education, advocacy and leadership to shape a violence-free future for families in the District of Columbia.
