The mission of the Center for Relationship Abuse Awareness is to provide education and training so that communities and institutions respond effectively to women experiencing relationship abuse.
Our community education program educates and trains the community through workshops, printed materials, and presentations. We provide workshops to students in order to 1) increase awareness about and prevent relationship abuse and 2) provide them with strategies to take action in their communities. We train professionals such as university staff, law enforcement, health care providers, counselors, business managers and court personnel to effectively respond to domestic violence survivors and their children. Collaborating with and educating these professionals so that they can participate in the solution to end domestic violence creates long-lasting systemic change.
