Violence Prevention Intimate Partner Violence
The Family Violence Prevention Project strives to prevent intimate partner violence through training, community presentations, community organizing projects and a countywide public-awareness campaign. The goal of the Family Violence Prevention Project is to empower individuals, neighborhoods, organizations and systems-based structures to shift from a cultural norm that accepts intimate partner violence to a norm that promotes healthy and peaceful relationships. Intimate partner violence can affect anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, gender, etc. And because it can affect anyone, it affects us all.
