  • 11 people are interested

On Saturday, June 4, 2022, the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence will host its 19th Annual Race Away from Domestic Violence. The Race will start and finish at the West Plaza of City Market in downtown Indianapolis. Critical to our success is the help of our volunteers who help with registration, course direction, water stops, rest and recuperation area, and children's activities.

Volunteer requirements are as follows:
* All volunteers will be asked to participate in an orientation meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 @ 6:00pm ET.
* Report time is no later than 7am on Race morning. * Registration volunteers will be needed at 6:15am.
* Volunteer duties will end no later than 11am.
* Dress code; volunteers who still have their ICADV Volunteer shirt are asked to wear that. If you do not have an ICADV Volunteer shirt, you will receive one at check in. Comfortable shoes are a MUST.

If you have any questions about volunteering or the race, please contact Erika Young at eyoung@icadvinc.org. You can also sign up to volunteer by visiting our Race page and clicking the volunteer button: icadvinc.org/5k.

Mission Statement

Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Mission: ICADV is committed to the elimination of domestic violence through: providing public awareness and education; advocating for systemic and societal change; influencing public policy and allocation of resources; educating and strengthening coalition members; and, promoting the availability of quality comprehensive services.

Description

Philosophy: ICADV believes that violence is endemic to our society. We believe patriarchal values and attitudes support and perpetuate violence and we seek to confront the roots of that violence within ourselves and within larger economic, social and political systems.

We believe that no human being deserves to be beaten or violated by another. We believe in the right of all persons to live without fear, oppression, or sexual, emotional or physical abuse.
We believe domestic violence is the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in personal relationships.
We believe batterers should be held accountable for their actions.
We believe in inclusiveness and respect for diversity.
We believe in the empowerment of individuals to achieve self-determination.
We are committed to the ideas and practices of a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere in ICADV, which fosters open communications, respect and cooperation among all members of the coalition.
We believe the elimination of domestic violence is best achieved by utilizing a multi-faceted approach.
We believe that while the majority of victims of domestic violence are women and children, everyone is affected by it and the solution involves everyone.
