Domestic Violence Advocacy Best Practices

  • If you know that violence is actively occurring, call 9-1-1 immediately. The police are the most effective way to remove the immediate danger to a victim and their children.
  • When bringing up the topic of domestic violence with a client, remember to be nonjudgmental. They may be embarrassed by the situation, and you might be the first person they are telling.
  • If a client gives you permission, you might want to help them document the instances of domestic violence. Take pictures of injuries, write down exact transcripts of interactions and make notes on a calendar of the dates that things happen. Documenting the abuse might help the victim to obtain legal aid later on.
  • If your client has been open with you about their situation, you can help them learn about their rights. Women’s Law is an excellent resource for information on domestic violence laws and procedures.
  • You can also recommend they come up with a safety plan, they can call The Hotline for assistance. 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)

Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness for women and children. Domestic Violence Housing First gets survivors into stable housing as quickly as possible, and then provides support as they rebuild their lives.

We believe everyone should have access to money, housing, childcare, and education so they can make decisions about their relationships without regard for the financial impact of those decisions.

Our Domestic Violence Fatality Review provides up-to-date statistics for Washington State and research findings and recommendations for improving the community response to domestic violence.

Survivors tell us that immigration status and cultural isolation are major barriers to getting safe. We offer tools for advocates working to minimize these barriers.

We help local domestic violence programs with the challenges of running an organization. We promote visionary leadership and management excellence, teach practical skills, and mentor the next generation of skilled leaders.

We provide training and support to legal advocates to help them understand how the legal system works, how to help survivors navigate the legal system, and how to advocate within the legal system on behalf of survivors.

Domestic violence is preventable. We provide tools and resources to help individuals, organizations, and communities play a role in stopping this violence before it starts.

Our public policy advocacy includes working for improved laws, helping our members communicate with their legislators, and educating our communities on changes in state and federal law that impact survivors of abuse.

Refuse To Abuse® is a partnership between the Seattle Mariners and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence to take a stand against domestic violence and promote healthy, respectful relationships.

Everyone should be free to make decisions about their body and their family, and experience sexuality without violence, coercion, or external control. We address the link between reproductive and sexual coercion and violence against women and girls.

We provide support and peer learning opportunities for people running a domestic violence shelter.
