WE BELIEVE IN CHANGE
Her World Initiative seeks to help change the life of one woman at a time afflicted by domestic violence, the litigation abuse that often ensues when they try to escape it, and the journey that takes these women from surviving, to healing, and ultimately thriving. Domestic violence is all too common and while we may not be able to change the world, we can change one woman’s world, do it over and over again, create awareness along the way, and then the collective can change the world.
“Why? Well, my case ages out in the next 8 years so it is probably too late for my case. But, it is not too late for the next generation of survivors and their children. I am doing it for them.”
Ashton Steele • President and Founder
You only get as much justice as you can buy, and domestic violence survivors can rarely afford any. It is a primary goal of HWI to obtain adequate funding to employ full time counsel to represent domestic violence survivors, see justice served, and create new case law for judges to look to when presiding over domestic violence cases.
Victims of domestic violence often do not understand what happened to them, how to heal, the litigation abuse that can follow domestic violence, and how to become a survivor. Supporters often do not know how to effectively help those that they love take the journey from victim to survivor. HWI is working on developing educational materials to help educate survivors and supporters on what they are going through. Additionally, family law judges are not required to have any specific training in identifying domestic violence. HWI is currently developing a judicial training program that will be offered at no cost to those who currently hold or are running for a judicial seat.
