Racial Equity and Expansion

Inclusion and equality are among DVCC’s core values. We are committed to providing services that are welcoming and affirming to individuals of all races, colors, religions, gender identities, gender expressions, ages, national origins, ethnicities, abilities, socio-economic levels, cultures, languages, and sexual orientations. As a trauma-informed organization, we acknowledge the trauma inflicted by racism, both individual and systemic, on domestic violence survivors and communities. This is often compounded with the trauma from experiencing domestic violence. DVCC strives to break down barriers associated with racial inequities and continues to work with survivors to understand and address how these factors may impact their healing process.  

Celebrating Indigenous Peoples Month

November is Indigenous Peoples Month, also known as Native American Heritage Month. This month is a time to celebrate Indigenous cultures, traditions, and achievements, as well as acknowledge the horrible atrocities they have endured throughout our nation’s history.
In honor of this month, the REE Committee is spotlighting this population and taking a look at how domestic violence uniquely impacts the Indigenous community.
