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 womens  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.
