WORKING FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE.
A Community For Peace is a trauma informed social justice center for victims and survivors of domestic violence, family violence and sexual assault.
What Is A Trauma Informed Domestic Violence Center?
A trauma informed center offers staff and policies and protocols that reflect an understanding of the lifecycle of abuse and trauma, as an event and an understanding of that impact over the lifespan of the individual who has experienced trauma.
What Is Social Justice?
Domestic violence, as a social illness, has its root cause many generations ago, when laws giving men the right to chastise, discipline or control their wives and children with weapons no larger than the size of his thumb.
Creating Social Justice and Equality
To create an environment of social justice where the truth can be told requires every staff person and board member to have a true understanding of domestic violence, its causes, and its holistic impact on everyone in the environment and its social implications.
How A Community For Peace Creates Social Justice
At ACFP we have established a robust outreach program and are all currently offering services in six other sites in Sacramento County. Being in these neighborhoods in our county allows us to customize services to get folks the kinds of domestic violence services that are relevant within their culture and other community.
How Does ACFP Reduce The Impact of Domestic Violence on Children?
A Community For Peace, established our second mission, which is to reduce the impact of domestic violence on children. And part of changing the conditions which caused the issue, the early intervention of learned behaviors will better result in more empowered children, who in turn will become far more empowered adults.
