The Center for Hope and Healing

Our mission is a world free of sexual violence. We envision a world where gender, race and other oppressions are erased: a world where women and girls are safe and valued. We envision a world where men and boys engage in healthy masculinity and where concepts of gender are inclusive and not necessarily binary. We work to place survivors' lives and voices at the center of all we do in the movement, particularly the voices of SE Asian, Black, and Latinx survivors who have been most marginalized in our communities. CHH's vision drives its goals to strengthen culturally-relevant advocacy, promote prevention and community engagement, and influence public policy and systems change.
