Employer: North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCCADV)
Located in: Durham, North Carolina
Degree Required: Bachelors
The mission of the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCCADV) is to lead the state’s movement to end domestic violence and to enhance work with survivors through collaborations, innovative trainings, prevention, technical assistance, state policy development, and legal advocacy. We believe that patriarchy, gender inequality, and all oppressions play a central role at the individual, institutional, and cultural levels in creating and maintaining an environment which accepts domestic violence. We believe it is vital to understand and advocate for the elimination of all forms of oppression, including, but not limited to: sexism, racism, and homophobia. We believe it is critical to serve all domestic violence survivors, regardless of race, age, class and ethnic group, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental and physical abilities, religious and spiritual beliefs, and immigration status. We know oppression comes in all forms and leads to secondary issues for survivors; we strive to serve all survivors of domestic violence and their respective needs.
We believe that through the power of our shared experiences and collective voice, we can work together to create individual, institutional, and cultural change. We work intentionally and actively to create safe spaces for survivors of domestic violence. We believe the voice and experience of survivors must be the foundation of our work, and that the domestic violence movement can change society.
