Who We Are

The Futures Without Violence Policy Action Center is a small and mighty team of advocates, policy advisors, and good troublemakers seeking to end violence and empower those impacted to heal. FUTURES, then the Family Violence Prevention Fund, opened its first Washington D.C. based public policy office over a decade ago and will launch its new Center for Policy and Action in 2023.

Our Policy Agenda

Our current policy goals center amplifying the voices of and healing those most impacted by violence and helping prevent violence to those at risk, both abroad and at home. This includes resources and programs for survivors of violence and children who have been exposed to violence. Our work seeks to prevent violence before it happens, and to us, that includes investment: investment into housing, child care, effective and quality training, supports for families, and economic opportunity. We also focus on uplifting girls around the world to access their full potential and agency, through access to education, leadership opportunities, and seats at the political and civic table.
