Peace Over Violence is a nonprofit 501c3, multicultural, community based and volunteer centered organization dedicated to a building healthy relationships, families and communities free from sexual, domestic and interpersonal violence. To achieve this mission, our agency manages five departments delivering the services of: Emergency, Intervention, Prevention, Education and Advocacy.
Violence against women is the most pervasive yet least recognized human rights abuse in the world. For over three decades, women’s advocacy groups around the world have been working to draw attention to the physical, psychological, and sexual abuse of women and to stress the need for action. We have provided abused women with support and protection, lobbied for legal reforms, and challenged the pervasive culture of violence.
Peace Over Violence has a grassroots origin revolving around volunteer contributions. We are present in the streets, schools, hospitals and courts; acting up, advocating against and healing violence. Our call for action over the last 35 years for a world free of violence has garnered widespread respect, support and dedicated allies among police, prosecutors, politicians, healthcare providers, individual supporters, celebrities and a growing list of sponsors from corporations and foundations.
