Our agency recently learned that our proposal to speak on the Domestic Violence Information and Referral Center (DVIRC) project led by W.O.M.A.N., Inc. and utilized by thirty-four agencies throughout California, was accepted by the Department of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Delaware and the Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence. On April 24-25th, staff members Jill Zawisza and Mariya Taher will head to Newark, Delaware to present at the “Powerful Partnerships: 20 Years of the Violence Against Women Act and the Path Ahead” Conference. The conference will highlight the power of partnerships in working to end gender violence and celebrate the collaborative work fostered by the Violence Against Women Act over the past 20 years while embracing creative approaches and exciting alliances. Toward this end, the conference will create a unique space for survivors, community activists, advocates, researchers, business leaders, and government officials from across the nation to come together to share research findings, best practices, and lessons learned and to foster trust, resilient relationships, and innovative strategies for addressing gender-based violence as we look forward to the future. This is a wonderful opportunity for W.O.M.A.N., Inc. to showcase the successes of the DVIRC and how the system has built a stronger, more coordinated network of domestic violence service providers across the state of California.
