Our Mission: The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), a social change organization, is dedicated to creating a social, political, and economic environment in which violence against women no longer exists.
NNEDV is a membership organization of state and territorial domestic violence coalitions that empowers survivors and their children through a network of national, state, and community based organizations. We provide leadership, advocate for effective public policy, improve institutional and cultural systems, share knowledge nationally and internationally, and change societal attitudes about domestic violence.
Our Core Values: First, we always respect, honor, and support the work of the state and territorial coalitions. We are ethical, courageous, trustworthy and inclusive in our interactions and services to empower women. We lead with innovation, creativity, and compassion. We strive to be connected, utilize our networks and to be collaborative. We honor the values of the movement and the women and children it serves with responsive outreach, compassion, courage and a commitment to diversity.
Our History: NNEDV was formed in 1990 when a small group of domestic violence victim advocates came together to promote federal legislation related to domestic violence. The group was known as the Domestic Violence Coaliton on Public Policy. In 1995, shortly after the passage of VAWA, this groundbreaking organization became the National Network to End Domestic Violence, an innovative group that served as the leading voice for domestic violence victims and their allies. Today, NNEDV provides training and assistance to the statewide amd territorial coalitions against domestic violence. It also furthers public awareness of domestic violence and changes beliefs that condone intimate partner violence.
