video background


Gender-based violence refers to acts of intimidation, control, coercion, and physical and sexual violence that are rooted in strict gender roles and inequity. No one of any gender, race, or age is immune to the harm caused by this form of violence. It is happening in your community. It is happening to people you know – and it often intersects with other forms of oppression, like racial and economic injustice.

We believe that strengthening communication between our members and building relationships with public officials and community leaders is critical to the success of our shared work to end gender-based violence in King County. Our organization amplifies individual and group efforts and leads regional initiatives that:

  • Support the needs of survivors
  • Demand accountability and change from people who commit acts of gender-based violence
  • Increase the efficiency and responsiveness of institutions and programs
  • Provide training and technical support to allied organizations
  • Mobilize the community to challenge social and cultural standards that perpetuate inequity, rigid gender roles, and the abuse of power
