It also describes specific ways funding is bolstering our ability to pursue justice and apply effective techniques to respond to domestic and sexual violence throughout the United States.

Vignettes--submitted by people whose lives have been saved by VAWA funds--illuminate the data in the report.

The Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence is the leading voice for survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Tennessee. Established in 1983 as a nonprofit agency, the Coalition is a statewide network of domestic violence programs, rape crisis centers, allied programs, and individuals working together to end domestic and sexual violence in Tennessee. We advocate for laws that protect victims of rape and abuse, train police officers, judges and frontline workers, provide life-saving services to victims, and partner with communities to prevent and end violence. We invite you to stand with us to improve the lives of survivors and create a world in which rape and abuse no longer exist.


The Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence is a nonprofit organization composed of community leaders and program members who share a common vision of ending violence in the lives of Tennesseans.
