Community Education & Advocacy

Our vision to end the cycle of domestic violence and exploitation lends to prevention and intervention work within the community. The primary purpose of WTLC’s education and advocacy work is to develop cohesive and strategic approaches to create systematic change in the community.


WTLC hopes to establish and foster community understanding, encourage community involvement, and influence behaviors and attitudes to strengthen the lives of survivors of battering and exploitation while engaging the community to take action to end domestic violence and exploitation.
