Each year, End Abuse asks those who use our services – domestic violence program staff, allies, & survivors statewide – to take a survey that asks:
How can we best work together?
From trainings & resources, to help and support, it’s a chance to tell us how we’ve done, reflect on where we are, and shape where we should go.
Share your thoughts, and form the future of our work.
To take the survey, visit bit.ly/annualservicessurvey21SM
Who is this survey for?
This survey is for anyone who uses End Abuse services. That includes domestic violence program staff (advocates, directors, volunteers), partner organizations doing work that crosses paths with End Abuse, and victims and survivors.
Is it an anonymous survey?
Yes! You’re welcome to share more about yourself in the survey if you’d like, but respondents’ information is kept completely confidential.
What is done with the information I share?
Coalition staff carefully look through the information shared in this survey, and use it to shape our trainings, resources, support, and direction. We are a membership-based coalition that centers survivors’ voices and experiences, so we deeply value the information you share with us as we work to meet the needs of all survivors, advocates, and allies.
Examples of Shifts Based on 2020 Annual Services Survey Feedback
Monthly Policy Calls with End Abuse & WCASA
When WI advocates communicated to us that they could use additional support in public policy advocacy and staying up to date about state legislation, we responded by collaborating with our partners at the WI Coalition Against Sexual Assault (WCASA) and we created Monthly Policy Calls, where we invite anyone interested to learn more about the state of key legislation impacting survivors in WI as well as offering the opportunity to ask questions and provide input into our policy advocacy efforts. Through this new initiative, advocates around the state feel increasingly connected to how they can create public policy change that better serves survivors.
Continuing Learning Training Series on Racism, White Supremacy, & Anti-Violence Work with Brandi Grayson/Urban Underground
In the 2020 survey, several respondents offered thoughts that aligned with this advocate’s feedback: “I think continued training on racism would be helpful as we struggle to end systemic racism.” In response to survey feedback and our commitment to sustainable action toward dismantling white supremacy, we partnered with WCASA and Urban Underground to host a monthly, year-long training series on racism, white supremacy, and anti-violence work. Throughout 2021, these spaces for domestic violence and sexual assault advocates across WI offer opportunities for deep reflection, (un)learning, and deconstruction of white supremacist culture, especially as it pertains to our field.
Thank you for your feedback, input, and expertise that helps shape how we move forward as an antiviolence movement!
