Women’s Justice Center/Centro de Justicia para Mujeres is an independent, tax deductible non profit organization and was founded in 1998 in Sonoma County/California.
Women’s Justice Center works to end violence against women and children, especially in the Latina and other underserved communities. We do this through advocacy, activism and education. All our services, workshops, and publications are free of charge to the community.
Women's Justice Center Mission:
To provide advocacy, free of charge, for victims of rape, domestic violence, and child abuse, particularly in the Latina and other under served communities of Sonoma County. To provide advocacy training and community education. To coordinate the Task Force on Women in Policing with the goal of increasing the number of women and minorities in our law enforcement agencies. To commit to equal justice for all women and girls.
Activities and services:
• Improving criminal justice response to violence against women and children: We do this through collaboration with local and national law enforcement groups, and by creating bilingual guides to help women advocate for themselves and others in the criminal justice system. We also investigate and report on law enforcement history leading up to homicides of women and girls.
• News Round-up: Women's Justice Center publishes a daily round-up of violence-against-women news, reports, studies, announcements, opinion and more, some in English, some in Spanish.
• Bilingual booklets: Women’s Justice Center writes and publishes bilingual booklets on violence against women.
• Talks-Training-Workshops: We educate to stop the violence. In English or Spanish, in workshops and talks, we teach others how to advocate for individual victims, and how to end the violence in the community.
• Civil Rights Legal Case Work: We investigate and advocate on civil rights legal cases selected to make major social change.
• Justicia: Women’s Justice Center publishes and distributes 1000 copies of our newsletter, Justicia.
• www.justucewomen.com: Our fully bilingual web site has more than 100 original, paired, English/Spanish guides for women on how to deal with rape, domestic violence, and child abuse.
