The mission of NCCADV is to create a social change through the elimination of the institutional, cultural, and individual oppressions that contribute to domestic violence.

We believe that domestic violence is a pattern of domination in which batterers intentionally choose to cause fear, injury and/or pain in order to gain and maintain power and control over their partners. In addition to physical violence, battering often includes sexual, emotional and economic abuse. We believe domestic violence is absolutely unacceptable.

We believe that patriarchy and gender inequality play a central role at both the personal and societal level in creating and maintaining domestic violence. We know that most domestic violence is committed by men against women. We believe it is vital to understand and eliminate all forms of oppression including sexism, racism and homophobia. We believe that it is critical to provide services to survivors of all races, ages, classes, religions, ethnic groups, sexual orientations, gender identities, and abilities.

We believe in the power of the shared experience to illuminate the issues we face and in working together to create personal and social change. We will work intentionally and actively to create safe spaces for survivors of domestic violence. We believe the voice and experience of survivors must be the foundation of domestic violence work and that the movement can change society.
