Grant-making toolkit on LGBTQ communities of color

Funders for LGBTQ Issues launched a historic, online resource to help grantmakers understand the critical issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBTQ) communities of color. This toolkit includes a range of original funder tools, perspectives from foundation and nonprofit leaders in the field, related publications and much more. We hope to enhance the philanthropic conversation on opportunity, diversity and equity.

Growing Together Focus Groups on Domestic Violence and Mother-Child Relationships

In 2011, WCADV conducted six adult and two youth focus groups at DV programs in eight locations around Wisconsin. The purpose of these groups was to understand more about how DV has affected mother-child relationships and learn more about what these mothers and children need from DV programs. The focus grops were supplemented with information gathered from children in support groups in local domestic violence programs.  Here are the final reports from the focus groups and the children’s support groups.

Guide to Training New Children and Youth Advocates

The guide offers an introduction to the basic knowledge and skills that are important for children and youth (CY) advocates in Wisconsin domestic violence programs. It is a training tool for new CY advocates and their supervisors to use together. The guide is divided into two sections. The “Knowledge” section includes topics that children and youth advocates should become familiar with. These topics are arranged in approximate order of their importance to the job. The “Skills” section includes skills needed to do the job. Each topic contains a link to one or more free, web-based resources that provide newly-hired children and youth advocates with a basic foundation in each of these important job-related topics. Suggestions for using the guide are included.

New Advocate Manual

The New Advocate Manual welcomes new advocates to End Domestic Abuse WI, and provides an entry to learning about many different aspects of advocacy. It was created as a supplement to in-person and on-the-job training for new advocates at domestic abuse programs. It also serves as an access point to resources that include publications, handouts, videos, recorded webinars, websites, organizations and e-learning modules; some have been created by End Abuse, but much of the content has been created by others.

Below is an introduction to the manual and nine separate sections. Each is a document that can be printed for easier reading, but should also be used electronically to link to embedded resources. We recommend that you read each section and follow links to explore resources as appropriate. Because these resources are so varied, the ways you might best use them will also vary. For example, some are short video clips or handouts that can be easily absorbed as you read the section in which they appear. Others are longer webinars or manuals that require more time. Some links are reference materials, perhaps leading you to an organization or service that you may need down the road, so just knowing how to access it later is important. Some of the resources will be more useful than others, depending on your specific role within your agency. For example, section 8, Communal Living, is less relevant to those who work in agencies that do not have a shelter. We hope this manual empowers you with knowledge and resources as you join the community of advocates in Wisconsin!

One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising is a global movement to end violence against women and girls. Its name acknowledges that over one billion women and girls will experience sexual violence in their lifetime.

From the One Billion Rising Website:


For the fourth year of the campaign, the One Billion Rising's global coordinators chose to continue the theme of Revolution as an escalation of the first three stages: One Billion Rising (2013), One Billion Rising for Justice (2014), and One Billion Rising: Revolution (2015). 

We've danced. We've demanded justice. We've demanded changes. This year we are radicalising our actions—enlarging, deepening, and expanding the revolution. Let's continue to radically shift consciousness and be braver, bolder, more creative and determined with our actions. Focus on the most marginalized women and girls to bring about true, long lasting change.

To learn more about the movement, visit the One Billion Rising website.
