Advocates and Movement Makers

Prevention work is not meant to replace victim services. The goal is to create a more nuanced continuum that addresses initial perpetration and revictimization in a proactive way. 

Before domestic violence programs and coalitions can provide effective leadership to IPV prevention efforts, they must build internal commitment and capacity. This section reviews why individual and organizational commitments to prevention are important, how investing in prevention goals can further the core work of domestic violence advocates, and where to begin in terms of integrating prevention into existing priorities and ensuring the capacity needed to keep moving forward.
