Back in June, many of the same folks that help to create NWCAT established a new nonprofit organization; on June 14, 2012 the National Women's Coalition Against Violence & Exploitation was born.
The mission of NWCAVE is to help to inform, educate and prevent violence and exploitation against women and children nationally and internationally. Whether human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual violence, stalking, bullying, hate crimes and all other forms of violence and exploitation against women and children, NWCAVE strives to keep the public informed and educated on how we can live in a more civilized society free of violence. NWCAVE is a volunteer operated national non-profit organization.
"We have a dream...a world free of violence and exploitation," said Michelle Bart, President and Co-founder of NWCAVE. "We have brought together twenty-five dynamic and passionate experts to help lead us in combating violence and exploitation in our society. In order to combat these epidemics we must start the conversation and we hope the public will continue coming to us for speakers, consultants and media correspondents," said Bart.
NWCAVE divisions include the national programs committee, the missing persons support services division, media ambassador council, speakers' bureau and the conferences & events committee. To see the bios of the NWCAVE team visit http://nwcave.org/images/NWCAVE_EPK-final.pdf.
