Since its inception in 1978, the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV) has worked to create and support the social change necessary to prevent and confront all forms of domestic violence. NYSCADV’s vision of the future is that the collective voices of survivors and advocates will strengthen public and private response and prioritize domestic violence as a human rights issue. As a statewide membership organization, NYSCADV achieves our mission through activism, training, prevention, technical assistance, legislative development and advocacy, and leadership development. NYSCADV promotes best practices and broad-based collaboration integrating anti-oppression principles in all our work.
