WHO WE ARE
The Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) is a statewide voice for survivors of domestic violence and their children. With over 50 member organizations providing direct service to survivors, together we work towards ending domestic violence in Illinois.
We advocate for safer state and federal policy, which helps survivors of all backgrounds better navigate breaking out of the cycle of domestic violence.
Through training, we empower domestic violence professionals and advocates with the knowledge and skills to best assist survivors and their children.
By providing support and resources to our member agencies throughout Illinois, we stand as a united force in our work towards ending domestic violence.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ISN'T A PRIVATE ISSUE
We live in a world where 1 in 3 Women, and 1 in 7 Men are victims of domestic violence.
The harmful effects of domestic violence are far reaching, undermining justice and safety in all corners of our society. Once mistakenly thought of as a private issue, we’re inviting you to join the public conversation about domestic violence issues. When one of us hurts, all of us hurt—survivors aren’t in this alone. And together we can do something about it.
You can be a voice of change.
Domestic violence impacts everyone, even if it hasn’t touched your life directly. By learning about the challenges survivors face, you can help in the efforts to break down those barriers.
