Every year millions of people are abused in this country.  Stop Family Violence is a leading national organization working to bring survivor voices - and the voices of their allies - to bear on the social and political agendas affecting their lives.

Mission:  Stop Family Violence's mission is to organize and amplify our nation's collective voice against family violence. We are a catalyst for social change - empowering people to take action at the local, state and national level to ensure safety, justice, accountability and healing for people whose lives are affected by violent relationships. Our goal is family peace.

History:  Stop Family Violence was founded in July 2000 when reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act - crucial federal legislation that would have provided $3.5 billion in funding for domestic violence and sexual assault programs nationwide - had been stalled in Congress for 18 months and was about to expire. 

Using the power of the Internet, in just 3 months,
Stop Family Violence organized people from across the nation who sent more than 164,000 messages and made countless phone calls to Congress urging VAWA's reauthorization.

2001 Best Web Site
for Issue Advocacy

In January 2001, Stop Family Violence, and our consultants at the time,
e-advocates, were awarded the American Association of Political Consultant's prestigious Pollie Award for the best website for issue advocacy for our role in ensuring VAWA's passage. 

Since then, our members have taken action and made a difference on a variety of other issues.  Join our email list so you can be kept informed and become involved!
