Founder and President
Supporting survivors and preventing violence take courage from all of us: the bystander who speaks out when witnessing harassment or abuse, the frontline responder who helps a survivor heal, and the incredible supporter like you who makes our work possible. Courage is contagious – and as we close out 2018, I remain so deeply optimistic and grateful to have you by our side. We truly could not do it without you!
frontline responders and advocates were trained and supported by us.
INCREASE in funding for public schools that can be used to address trauma – we advocated successfully for this on Capitol Hill this year!
secondary school athletes participated in our Coaching Boys Into Men program, which is proven to decrease instances of teen relationship abuse.
educational materials were provided by us to health care workers, survivors, and violence prevention advocates. These materials often serve as a confidential lifeline for victims.
college students are attending universities this year that are safer as a result of our National Leadership Institutes: Ending College Gender-based Violence.
in U.S. funding will be invested in ending gender-based violence globally because of our advocacy with partners – a win at a time when international funding is decreasing.
We received the highest marks from the nation's most respected charity watchdog groups.

Futures Without Violence leads the largest national evaluation to date of what works to help families experiencing domestic violence in the child welfare system, and we support low-income kids in Head Start centers across the country. These programs, and our award-winning Changing Minds campaign, promise to be life-changing for 899,000 of the most vulnerable children in the United States.
We mobilized youth activists across the country to lead the charge for safer schools, ending bullying, and helping teens practice healthy relationship skills.
Over 315,000 college students who are attending colleges this year alone were positively affected by our campus gender-based violence prevention work.
While gender-based violence can impact anyone, racism, poverty, and sexism fueled by structural inequities contribute to higher rates of gender-based violence among women and girls of color. Our work addresses this disproportionate burden of trauma and violence, from infancy to adulthood.
School districts across the country are making our Coaching Boys Into Men program mandatory for secondary school athletics! The program is proven to reduce teen relationship violence among young men. We’re also expanding the program internationally in Ecuador, Uganda, and Pakistan.
Futures Without Violence helps health care providers to support transgender, gender nonconforming, and LGB individuals, with over 100,000 patient education materials this year. Across the health care system, we conducted over 115 trainings, reaching 7,000 health care providers with important resources for all people on how to prevent abuse.
We lead the country’s only National Resource Center dedicated to ending all forms of gender-based violence in the workplace, and our services are in demand like never before!
We mobilized thousands in partnership with #ImmigrantWomenToo to protect asylum for survivors of domestic violence and helped to increase employment and educational opportunities for survivors of trafficking.

“Courage – you develop courage by doing small things like just as if you wouldn’t want to pick up a 100-pound weight without preparing yourself.”
