About GCADV

GCADV envisions a Georgia free of domestic violence. We empower survivors and the programs that serve them, educate the public, and advocate for responsive public policy. Our strength is in numbers, as we collaborate throughout Georgia to stop domestic violence.

GCADV supports this mission by increasing the capacity of its member programs and service providers which leads to the enhancement of quality services for victims, mobilizing programs and communities statewide to fine-tune public policy development which helps victims and prevents domestic violence, and by educating the public to take action and prevent domestic violence.

Why Race to Empower?

Your participation in the Race to Empower aids GCADV in continuing its mission towards a Georgia free of domestic violence. Runners and walkers are encouraged to wear purple to show support for the movement to end domestic violence.

Join as a Team.

We encourage our Member Programs and others to join as a team.  As a team of a Member Program, you’ll help raise money for your Coalition and will receive separate recognition and bragging rights as a member program for the top three running/walk slots.
