HSCADV engages communities and organizations to end domestic violence through education, advocacy, and action for social justice. HSCADV is a private, not-for-profit organization and is a statewide partnership of domestic violence programs and shelters
We envision a Hawai’i where all individuals and families thrive and live free from violence.
The Hawai’i State Coalition Against Domestic Violence serves as a resource and network for engaging and mobilizing individuals, organizations, and communities to end domestic violence.
Principles of Unity
The Hawai‘i State Coalition Against Domestic Violence affirms the right of each person to live without fear or the threat of violence.
We strive to unify communities on all islands in the movement to end gender-based violence.
We value and recognize that true collaboration means that every party at the table has a voice.
We oppose the use of violence as a means of control in relationships and will not mirror, replicate nor inflict trauma in collaboration with organizations and in engagement with communities.
We recognize that oppression in the form of racism, sexism, misogyny, classism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, ageism, imperialism, heterosexism, ableism and xenophobia, creates a climate of supremacy, which enables and perpetuates domestic and sexual violence.
We believe that all women have the right to autonomy and self-determination regarding all sexual and reproductive matters, lifestyles, finances, education and employment. We encourage the leadership of women in making policy and program decisions.
*Mahalo to our sisters at the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence for allowing us to model these Principles of Unity from their own.
