Domestic Violence

For the 2013 class, the Women’s Policy Institute will accept applications from representatives of organizations that work to reduce the negative impacts that domestic violence has on the lives of women and their families and communities. The Women’s Foundation of California is a proud partner with the Blue Shield of California Foundation’s Strong Field Project, which is employing multiple strategies to strengthen leaders, organizations, and networks to build a stronger domestic violence field in California. Possible policy projects could include, but are not limited to:

  • Efforts to strengthen the rights of immigrant women who experience domestic violence;
  • Increase outreach and education to reduce teen dating violence;
  • Strengthen existing laws that are intended to support domestic violence victims and survivors.
