The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is a statewide membership coalition that was formed in 2005 through the merger of the California Alliance Against Domestic Violence (CAADV) and the Statewide California Coalition for Battered Women (SCCBW). These two organizations joined together to form one state coalition to foster unity within the domestic violence movement in California.

Like other Domestic Violence Coalitions throughout the U.S. States and Territories, The Partnership is rooted in the battered women's movement and the values that define this movement, including working towards social justice, self-determination, and ending the oppression of women.

The Partnership now stands as the nationally-recognized State Domestic Violence Coalition for California. Together with our 150 member organizations and individuals across the entire state, The Partnership has built upon the 30-year history of our predecessor organizations while forging into new territory to provide statewide leadership and successfully pass legislation to ensure safety and justice for domestic violence survivors and their children.
