Annual Report FY 2020

October 1, 2019 – September 30, 2020

2020 challenged all of us—personally and professionally—to be nimble. At BWJP this experience pushed us to new ways of delivering quality consultation, training and technical assistance, and policy leadership throughout the country. 

The annual report captures these prominent operational shifts, alongside our sustained commitment to improve various systems’ responses to gender-based violence. 2020 presented to us the reality that there is a copious amount of work left to be done in order to ensure meaningful access to all survivors of violence—regardless of race, language, gender identity, or the other myriad characteristics that too often lock victims out of relief. Our staff and board of directors remain committed to addressing these inequities. 

In October, BWJP closed an important chapter in our own history, with the retirement of our founding Executive Director, Denise Gamache. We are grateful for her years of leadership and will build on her hard work in the years to come. 

Thank you to our donors, governmental and nonprofit partners, and survivors across the country; you make our work possible. We look forward to your continued support and partnership in 2021 and beyond. 

In Solidarity, 

Amy Sánchez 

Executive Director
