Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Yesterday, Governor Kemp held a signing ceremony for SB477. This crucial bill, which goes into effect on January 1, 2021, revises the wording in Georgia code, which guides officers on arrests in cases of family violence, from “primary physical aggressor” to “predominant aggressor.” The phrasing "primary aggressor" could be interpreted to mean the person who acted first and has caused the arrest of many domestic violence survivors. This change in wording prevents unintended arrests of survivors which can result in loss of employment, housing and child custody, and can discourage them from contacting the police again in the future.

This is a big victory! Thank you to all who have been involved in advocating for this change.

Know ALL state and local laws that are in place. One crucial law to the safety of our clients and staff is that of disclosure of the location of programs. It is against Georgia law to disclose the location of any DV shelter!

Four states (California, Georgia, South Carolina, and Washington) classify the illegal disclosure of information about the location of a safe house as a misdemeanor that subjects a violator to a fine or imprisonment.

HELP keep our Georgia programs safe by kindly following these laws!!! 😳

Will y’all be accepting donations Monday?
Do you take women's clothing?
Hi! Have a couple of old computers (tower PCs) as well as keyboards and monitors, etc. I was wondering if they may could be useful in your ministry? I even have some childrens computer games (mostly educational). Just wondering if it’s anything you could use.
how can I report emotional and mental abuse if I am a man and my abuser is female? I feel so lost and no one believes me yet i have documented pics of my living conditions. She has turned the tables and made me the abuser via one of your own advocates with no evidence. But, i dont have pics and evidence. I dont know what to do. 😭😭😭😭

Hi! What’s the address to drop off donations? What donations are accepted? What donations are not needed? Is there perhaps a list somewhere?
Hello, my son has been building legos for years and years. He is looking to donate a box of legos to kiddos in need, he wanted me to Research some options in our community. His first legos were given to him by a good friend that was collecting for years himself. Now he is wanting to do the same. If you have any other resources that are an option if you are not please pass them along. He’s really excited for this! He’s 11 years old 🙂
