The Voices of Women Organizing Project (VOW) is the lead initiative of the Battered Women’s Resource Center. Our mission is to bring together survivors of domestic violence to improve the systems meant to provide safety and justice for abused women and their children.
VOW provides training, support, and technical assistance so that survivors can reclaim their power, identify their needs, and collectively craft public recommendations. VOW members organize to promote long-term systemic change by documenting institutional failures, testifying at hearings, creating position papers, and meeting with local and state officials. VOW is dedicated to ensuring that the voices of survivors are heard, recognized for their expertise, and included in the decision-making process.
