Who We Are

For more than 100 years, JWI has been working to end intimate partner violence through innovative programming, education and advocacy. From building self-esteem with pre-teens to sexual assault prevention education on college campuses to financial literacy trainings with women over 50, JWI programs educate, inspire and empower.

Our award-winning Safe Smart Dating program is rolling out to college campuses across the country, facilitating meaningful discussions between young men and young women on dating abuse, sexual assault and bystander intervention. Our When Push Comes to Shove...It's No Longer Love program was one of the first national programs on the prevention of dating abuse. Our National Alliance to End Domestic Abuse offers continued training for domestic violence professionals through high quality monthly webinars. Our advocacy efforts focus on the passage of legislation that supports women and girls, ensures their economic security and their ability to live lives free from violence.

JWI is a principal leader of the Coalition to End Violence Against Women and Girls Globally and serves as a Steering Committee Member of the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women as well as the NO MORE Coalition.

JWI is one of three organizations selected by the Avon Foundation for Women and the No More Campaign as part of the "See the Signs: Speak Out" bystander intervention initiative. The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and the Ohio Domestic Violence Network are offering programs on children's exposure to violence and domestic violence in the workplace, respectively.
