"When I dare to be powerful-to use my strength in the service of my vision-then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.

Audre Lorde

 The Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence works to eliminate barriers for individuals and communities, alongside those who have or are experiencing violence.  We recognize that in addition to physical, psychological, emotional and sexual abuse, survivors are impacted by the actions and attitudes of individuals and systems who perpetuate racism, sexism, xenophobia, and homophobia. 

ICADV advocates for funding on the state and national level; supports, opposes and proposes legislation that impacts victims of various forms of violence; and provides you with support, training and technical assistance to help you meet the diverse needs of survivors.
