Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Coalition Ending Gender-Based Violence works to end gender-based violence and promote equitable relationships through collective action for social change. We believe that together we can create safe and just communities where all people thrive.
Comprised of over 40 member programs and individuals throughout King County, WA, we work to support the diverse members and allies, doing tremendous work to end gender-based violence and serve survivors. We’re here to support their efforts so that they have tools and resources to work more effectively. We fight for protective legislation, policies, and funding at the state and local levels to improve how our communities handle domestic violence, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. We connect professionals across disciplines to share ideas, and we offer trainings about current challenges and best practices.
We also lead special projects that tap into the collective power of Coalition members and ensure access to high quality services for all survivors. Our current emphasis is on survivors who struggle with issues around mental health, chemical dependency, and/or family law. Past projects have been focused on increasing access to services for LGBTQ survivors of violence and on survivors of abuse who have been arrested.
