Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $100,000)

The purpose of the OVC FY 09 Action Partnerships initiative is to create partnerships among OVC, the victim services field, and national scope membership, professional and community service organizations to advance victims' rights and services through national-scope training, public awareness, and educational efforts. The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence's Women of Color Network proposes to build and enhance the professional capacity of victim advocates representing communities of color to strengthen advocacy to marginalized victims of intimate partner violence and sexual assault, to establish a framework for victim advocates representing communities of color and mainstream advocates to work collaboratively, and to provide ongoing training and technical assistance to maintain those collaborations. ca/ncf
