ACCESS staff join the One billion campaign across the country Feb. 14 rising against domestic violence.
The Domestic Violence Prevention Program focuses on changing social attitudes toward domestic violence, empowering individuals at risk for domestic violence, and decreasing the incidence of domestic violence in the Arab American community.
A vital component of this program is the ACCESS Arab American Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. This coalition consists of a professional and diverse group of people who are committed to create awareness, promote domestic violence prevention, and provide assistance to families impacted by violence and its outcome. The coalition strives to empower individuals to acquire the knowledge and survival skills necessary to take control of the decisions affecting their lives.
