Collaborate. Advocate. Educate. Empower.The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Inc. (GCADV) brings together member agencies, allied organizations and supportive individuals who are committed to ending domestic violence. Guided by the voices of survivors, we work to create social change by addressing the root causes of this violence. GCADV leads advocacy efforts for responsive public policy and fosters quality, comprehensive prevention and intervention services throughout the state.
Over the past 10 years, the Georgia Domestic Violence Fatality Review Project has honored the lives of 126 domestic violence homicide victims and six near-fatality survivors by learning valuable lessons from their stories.
Each year, GCADV acknowledges workers on the front lines in their efforts to end domestic violence. The “In the Trenches Award” recognizes one front-line advocate whose leadership goes beyond the ordinary to demonstrate extraordinary dedication to safety and justice for domestic violence survivors. Deadline for nominations is July 10, 2014.
