|Outreach, Training & Advocacy|
Sanctuary engages in community outreach and training to increase awareness and understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence, and to help communities and organizations build their own capacity to assist victims.
Sanctuary is also a leading advocate for positive changes in city, state, and federal laws and public policies that affect our clients. We have helped bring about legislative and legal victories in areas including child welfare, sex trafficking, family law, matrimonial law, and immigrant issues.
We pursue improvements in housing and homelessness policies, the family court system, access to public benefits, and laws affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals, and victims of sex trafficking.
Past outreach initiatives and advocacy events include:
