BWJP is the national legal resource for gender-based violence. Our projects provide some of the nation’s leading specialized policy and practice initiatives on improving survivor safety.
Our work addresses the many facets of gender-based violence, such as complex family dynamics, the importance of protection orders, the risk of firearms, and how to prevent the violence in the first place. It’s through our many programs and partnerships that we’re able to think systemically and at a community level.
We’re at the forefront of the movement to create systemic change, and we take that responsibility seriously. We know that it’s critical to maintain an intersectional lens that prevents further harm for historically marginalized communities. We will continue this critical work to keep survivors safe and support thriving families and communities.
