The Battered Women’s Resource Center believes that efforts to end domestic violence must be informed by those most affected by the issue. As an organization, we value diversity, accountability, and the empowerment of women. We respect all opinions and strive to create an atmosphere of trust so that survivors of different backgrounds and experiences feel welcomed and heard. VOW is dedicated to being a truly multi-cultural organization, representing all battered women.
I am so proud to be part of an organization that represents the diversity of NYC women, including African American, Latina, white, Asian, immigrant, lesbian and disabled women. As a result of my membership in VOW, I have evolved from a survivor of domestic violence into an activist.
