The DHS Resource Guide on Combating Violence Against Women (updated April 2015) highlights DHS resources available to the public focused on combating violence against women. This document summarizes and provides links to training, publications, guidance, alerts, newsletters, programs, and services available to the public from across the Department. The Resource Catalog is not exhaustive and will be updated on an annual basis
The DHS Council on Combating Violence Against Women, created in 2012, coordinates the Department’s efforts to stop sexual assault and other crimes and to ensure the effective administration of laws preventing violence against women. The Council provides a unique forum that brings together experts to identify and build consensus around the best practices to combat violence against women, promote consistency on internal policies, and examine how the Department can improve its ability to combat violence against women in the communities we serve and who are impacted by our work.
