The Domestic Violence Network’s Advocates Network is a group of individuals from social service organizations, law enforcement agencies, judiciaries, prosecutors’ offices, health care institutions, faith-based organizations, and other stakeholders that share a concern about domestic violence in Central Indiana and interact with victims, survivors and/or perpetrators of domestic violence.

The Domestic Violence Network facilitates monthly Advocates Network meetings to provide opportunities for professional development, foster networking and collaboration, and to share community resources. For more information about the Advocates Network, please contact Ash Rathwell, Training Services Manager, at arathwell@dvnconnect.org.

“The DVN Advocates Network provides excellent professional networking opportunities. Every time I attend a group session, I meet new professionals from all over the Indianapolis area. I really appreciate the chance to expand my network and meet new people who do amazing work. Meeting new colleagues and learning about their agencies helps me do my job better, because I am constantly learning about new resources in Indianapolis.”  — Director of Campus Initiatives

“This group equips me to serve  the Victims of Violence that I serve. The group educates me. It gives me faces attached to resources that I can recommend to my patients. It makes it much more personal for that patient and feels safer to me when I am referring.  Hopefully the group also receives something from my (our) presence.” — RN, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner
