Merger of Domestic Violence Advocacy Organizations

As the membership and advocacy organization of the 56 state and territorial coalitions against domestic violence, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) was the leading voice for domestic violence victims and their allies NNEDV provided training and technical assistance, furthered public awareness, and advocated for legislation and funding. Founded in 2000 in Brooklyn, WomensLaw was a web-based resource dedicated to providing easy-to-understand, state-specific legal information and tools like an email helpline to those experiencing or escaping domestic violence. In 2010, WomensLaw merged into NNEDV, which could then provide authoritative legal expertise and direct and indirect services through the web. The SeaChange-Lodstar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration provided funding to support the merger.
