In 2020, we laid the foundation for our first ever multi-year fundraising campaign. The Rise and Sore campaign will allow FVAP to continue to meet the needs of survivors of domestic violence in California, while helping us soar beyond state boarders and scaling our strategic appellate practice nationwide.
Deepening Our Commitment to Race Equity
FVAP has a strong set of core programs designed to help survivors of domestic violence obtain justice from the legal system. Through an equity first lens, we prioritize the needs of survivors who experience the intersection of gender and racial oppression. We are committed to centering principles of race equity in our work.
Expanding to Washington State
We have always known that changing the law through legal appeals is needed on a national level. After several years of extensive research and community outreach, we have begun our expansion by opening a second office in Washington State.
Reaching More Survivors of Gender Violence
Our proven strategy is changing the landscape of domestic violence law, and we see an opportunity to do more. The life experiences of domestic violence survivors often show up in the legal system as sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking, or intimate partner violence. FVAP is working to provide our critical services to more survivors of gender violence.
Fortifying a Sustainable Infrastructure
In order to continue to provide critical services to survivors of domestic violence we must invest in staffing. FVAP plans to fortify a sustainable infrastructure that will allow us to grow with purpose and response to the needs of survivors efficiently and effectively for years to come.
