Mission Statement

Changing the world, one domestic violence survivor at a time.

Description

Her World Initiative strives to change the world for domestic violence survivors, focusing largely on the aftermath of domestic violence that many people do not think about including: mental health challenges, legal issues, employment problems, and lack of education. We are working to make the world a more navigable place for survivors through education, advocacy, and awareness. At present, we are developing a judicial training to provide to judges that preside over domestic violence cases; teaching them how to identify subtle signs of domestic violence and understand how to work with survivors who may be fearful and/or present poorly in court. We are also working on funding to provide legal representation to survivors who are at risk of losing custody of their children to a former abusive partner. Lastly, through awareness, we want to break down myths regarding domestic violence and expose to society how abusers utilize the family court as a vehicle to continue to maintain control over and abuse their victim.
