Advocating for an end to gender violence

We recognize advocacy work as critically important to changing the social and institutional frameworks that perpetuate gender violence. Sanctuary staff, supporters and survivor-leaders advocate for improved policies and legislation around issues affecting survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence.

Our advocacy has led to the passage of life-saving city- and state-level legislation, and changed policies affecting our clients at major governmental agencies.
