We intentionally place this content warning, acknowledging that our content may be difficult to read. We encourage you to care for your safety and well-being.
We are survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, former NPIC workers, care workers, and neighbors who are passionate about the safety, well-being, and autonomy of survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and IPV. We have seen and experienced firsthand how the NPIC, the government, the police, and the Prison Industrial Complex have failed survivors by further traumatizing and leading to displacement without real solutions.
We aim to find real solutions that provide a healing environment and center self-determined autonomy to support survivors who do not neatly fit the “perfect survivor narrative” that is often imposed on survivors by the NPIC and other institutions. We seek to support and help aid those who are often Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Poor, Houseless, Criminalized, HIV+, sex workers, migrants, LGBTQIA & Trans, and other oppressed people not mentioned who due to these systematic barriers, amongst others, are not receiving the help they need to support them and their agency.
We are not a charity, but a collective of caring individuals across genders, races, and other intersecting identities who through solidarity aim to provide direct action and direct solutions to counter DV, especially during a housing crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic that still greatly afflicts our communities.
