ENDGBV’s Voices Committee is a survivor-led group that aims to serve as a voice of hope and change for survivors of intimate partner violence throughout New York City. Voices members will share our stories and experiences to raise awareness of intimate partner violence and its impacts, outreach to affected communities, and make recommendations for improved systemic responses as we work towards a future in which all new Yorkers, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation or immigration status feel supported in pursuing lives free from abuse.
In April of 2018, the Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence launched the Voices committee to help inform and support policies and programs at our Office while building a network of survivor leaders. The group is comprised of survivors who have received services at any of our five Family Justice Centers, and meets regularly each month. Members of the Voices committee have been providing input on ENDGBV’s protocols, volunteering to speak at the Office’s events and working to support the Office’s outreach efforts, all while building supportive relationships with each other and enhancing their advocacy and leadership skills.
