Ending domestic violence in California will require strong voices to advance the policy dialogue around DV.
To inform these conversations and educate policymakers on issues critical to the field, the Foundation supports yearly statewide surveys demonstrating Californians’ opinions, experience, and understanding of domestic violence. These polls also serve to expand the amount of publicly-available information on DV. This work is complemented by the Foundation's support for innovative practices and prevention policies that improve DV services for California’s most vulnerable populations — including the spouses and families of veterans. Faced with stress, injury, and mental health challenges, these families are a central element of our funding to prevent domestic violence.
