Advocate for Policy

The Houston Area Women’s Center advocates for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and seeks to educate legislators and key decision makers so that policies that are enacted are favorable for survivors.


Our senior staff participate in national, statewide and local committees and work closely with community leaders and other advocacy networks to ensure that organizational and legislative policies treat survivors of domestic and sexual violence fairly and with dignity and respect.
