Break The Silence Against Domestic Violence
BTSADV compliments the services crisis shelters offer and assist in decreasing the number of times victims return to abusive partners. Recovering after abuse can be a lifelong journey. We are committed to addressing healing after crisis by providing a national network for survivors to connect, speak out, and advocate against abuse.

National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV)'s mission is to lead, mobilize and raise our voices to support efforts that demand a change of conditions that lead to domestic violence such as patriarchy, privilege, racism, sexism, and classism. We are dedicated to supporting survivors and holding offenders accountable and supporting advocates.
NO MORE is a groundbreaking, global initiative comprised of the largest coalition of nonprofits, corporations, government agencies, media, schools and individuals addressing domestic violence and sexual assault. We are a campaign of NEO Philanthropy, a 501(c)(3) public charity, and are committed to engaging, reaching and working with people from diverse communities. We work to amplify and grow the movement to stop and prevent domestic violence and sexual assault, in homes, schools, workplaces and communities around the world by creating innovative campaigns, partnerships and tools that leverage the power of the media, entertainment, sports, technology, and collective action.
Domestic Violence Crime Watch
Domestic Violence Crime Watch is a labor of love dedicated to the victims of these horrific and senseless crimes, to their families and friends, and to those who have survived.
The Warrior Project
The Warrior Project is a non-profit project where I create hand-made dolls, dressed and adorned as warriors, out of the clothing and fiber scraps of survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. The idea is to create something beautiful and empowering while reclaiming innocence lost with something so childlike. I want to pay homage to my fellow survivor who isn't just a survivor, but a warrior: having to learn to live with that trauma, day in and day out, for the rest of our lives. The goal is to create an "army of empowerment" to exhibit across the country and spread awareness of domestic and sexual violence while also providing a space to hear, validate, and offer love to survivors of trauma.
The newest member of our army of empowerment, a new warrior doll in the image of a woman and her baby that lost their lives in a domestic violence situation. Their names are Ashleigh and Patience, and it was an honor to render these angels.
