Fuel The Fire
There’s no denying the incredible impact that the Strong Field Project made on the domestic violence field. But the learnings and outcomes go beyond domestic violence—they serve as a model for other foundations to approach change in their fields, an opportunity for those new to domestic violence to understand how it affects all systems of care (from health care to homelessness), and an invitation to those wanting to do more to join the conversation.
Whether you have supported a local domestic violence organization, read headlines in the news and want to get involved, or are new to domestic violence, you can play a role in shining a light on the darkness of domestic violence. If you’re a leader or funder in another field, draw inspiration from the Strong Field Project and let it be an example of how to propel progress for your cause. You can fuel the fire.
The first step is to Learn.
