Maybe it's someone you heard about.

Maybe it's someone you love. 

Maybe it's you.

Whatever the reason, your commitment to supporting survivors of domestic violence - and your desire to do what it takes to keep it from ever happening in the first place - is clear.  At NYSCADV, our work is to create and support the social change necessary to prevent and confront all forms of domestic violence. We do this by providing training and technical assistance for local domestic violence programs across New York State, working with communities to change our culture into one that doesn't condone violence, and advocating for policies to make sure that survivors across our state are provided the support they need to get safe and heal. 

Show your support for survivors of domestic violence in New York State by donating to our Coalition. Every dollar you give to NYSCADV will go directly to sustain our work, and will make a tremendous difference in the lives of survivors and in the work of the domestic violence advocates who support them.

From parades and festivals to community organizing and mobilizing, June is Pride month- a joyful celebration of LGBTQIA+ rights, voices, stories, and experiences. Pride month is a time when the spaces are crafted where people can bring their whole selves and proudly declare I AM HERE. It’s a time when power is built through community, the kind of power that can only be created through acceptance and togetherness that embraces the resilience of past and present.

Celebrated annually during the month of June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. It is a time to celebrate LGBTQ+ pride, the achievements of the LGBTQ+ community and to demonstrate equal rights.

Throughout June, NYSCADV will engage in virtual activities to increase public awareness and education about LGBTQ and domestic violence, including weekly blog posts on Fridays featuring resources, best practices, webinars, and other materials for dv programs used.

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Union Army General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas and informed the enslaved African Americans in the area that they were free. This news came two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. However, due to various reasons, it had not been fully enforced in Texas until General Granger’s arrival.
