The Network: Advocating Against Domestic Violence


33 N Dearborn, Suite 2210

Chicago, IL 60601



The Network is a group of 40+ member organizations dedicated to improving the lives of those impacted by gender-based violence through education, public policy and advocacy, and connecting community members with direct service providers. The Network leads collaborative work to imagine and realize radical ways to respond to and end gender-based violence, focusing on the intersections between systemic violence and gender-based violence.


The Network: Advocating Against Domestic Violence, has recently developed a theory of change to focus their advocacy efforts and program development on increasing access to community-based services and supports for survivors. The Network signed on to NNSI’s High-Impact Networks Campaign to receive additional resources to hone their theory of change, as well as develop a sustainability plan for the joint work they do between their 40+ member organizations.

A theory of change can be adapted to best fit the changing need of a network, so it's helpful to stay up-to-date on best practices and network attitudes. A sustainability plan is essential for ensuring that network operations stand solid in the face of turbulence and crossroads moments.
