Working through its Washington, DC office, FUTURES seeks to influence public policy aimed at preventing and one day ending violence against women and children in the United States and around the world. As part of our overall strategy for social change, we advocate for policies and legislation that prevent violence, support healthy children and families and help victims survive, heal and thrive.
Specifically, we focus on helping children and youth who have been exposed to or are victims of violence, changing the social norms and attitudes that tolerate and condone violence, engaging men and boys in prevention efforts and ensuring that there are adequate services and supports for victims. We prioritize multi-sectoral solutions built around evidence and systems reforms that lead to long-term, sustainable change.
