About The Network:

In 1983, domestic violence service providers created The Network: Advocating Against Domestic Violence (previously known as the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network) in order to exchange information about local resources for domestic violence survivors and to share best practices in responding to their needs. The Network still maintains the grassroots focus of its early years, though is now a coalition of over 40 gender-based violence organizations, allied professionals, and community members serving survivors in the Chicago and Cook County area. Gender-based violence includes domestic violence, sexual violence, and human sex-trafficking.

The mission of the Network is to educate, organize, and advocate as a collaborative membership organization to end gender-based violence and underlying oppression. The Network is leading the fight against gender-based violence through being a crisis first responder via the Illinois State Domestic Violence Hotline, policy and systems advocacy, and providing sector-wide training, as well as member and community engagement. As outlined in our policy platform, The Network seeks safety for all in our community and we stand for racial justice and equity. Recent events demonstrate the lack of safety that persists for Black and other minoritized members of our community and the continuing work that must be done to address our larger mission.

Domestic Violence affects one in three women nationally. Cook County has the highest rates of domestic violence in Illinois, with Women of Color disproportionately impacted. Just over 80% of calls to the Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline are placed by Survivors of Color, including 55% who identify as Black. Domestic violence impacts all communities regardless of geography, demography, or income. Domestic violence abuse tactics and the barriers and access routes to receiving assistance to be free from violence depend heavily on the socio-cultural surrounding of the victim and abuser. The Network focuses on working with survivors of all backgrounds, and provides training, education, and support to organizations on how to better serve survivors of color, immigrant survivors, low-income survivors, survivors in underserved/unserved areas, and LGBTQIA+ survivors, among others.
