Our mission is the build the capacities of Brown and Brown advocates and their communities to end violence against womyn, queer and trans folx, and young people. We envision a bold healthy community lead by liberated and powerful Black, Brown, womyn, queer and trans folx, and young people.  Our Core Guiding Values are informed by life-long advocates working to end gender-based violence with a belief that those most impacted should lead the work.  

Our Core Guiding Values:

  • We focus on empowering individuals that are most impacted by the issues,

  • Building sisterhood is central to developing a practice of shared understanding, mutual respect, and healthy communication,

  • We recognize that life and work experiences are also valued research,

  • All training and resources are focused around gender and social justice advocacy,

  • Training is informed by the field through the experiences of on-the-ground advocates,

  • Our training facilitates a deeper analysis of issues through multiple lenses so that participants can connect how issues impact communities,

  • Our training spaces are family friendly. We will accommodate the needs of working parents and their children,

 

Our Programs: 

The Wisconsin Family Strengthening Helpline (Helpline) is a Hmong-English bilingual Helpline serving domestic violence and sexual assault providers, advocates, victims and survivors as well as the general public with culturally-specific resources. We are the only Hmong-English bilingual Helpline in the state of Wisconsin and nationally. 

Our Wisconsin Womyn Training Institute is a program designed for and by advocates to provide culturally specific and relevant training for new and seasoned advocates with a goal of building their capacities based on lessons learned and practice and research-informed skills. 

We believe that in building capacities, we also need to build power with advocates and their communities.  Power Up Eau Claire is local to Eau Claire, WI.  We engage, inform and build community power through base building, GOTV, and fostering emerging leaders. 

Statewide, we provide Hmong Victim Services Support and Technical Assistance and support to victim service providers, advocates and their communities. 

Through our membership service, the Hmong Family Strengthening Helpline, and the Hmong Victim Services TA, we provide peer mentoring between new and seasoned advocates, new and seasoned managers and directors of culturally-specific programs and agencies, capacity building for agencies serving Southeast Asians, queer and trans folx, and young people, as well as support and provide consultation for providers.
