The Women of Color Network (WOCN) is a national grassroots initiative dedicated to building the capacity of women of color advocates and activists responding to violence against women in communities of color. Through trainings, technical assistance, and advocacy, WOCN helps foster women of color in the advancement of their anti-violence work and leadership.
The National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), a project of End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin, has been the sole technical assistance provider on the intersection of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse for the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) since 1999. Through advocacy and education, NCALL strives to challenge and change the beliefs, policies, practices, and systems
that allow abuse to occur and continue. NCALL aims to improve victim safety by increasing the quality and availability of victim services and support.
As part of the shared mission to enhance the safety and quality of life of victims across the lifespan, NCALL and OVW created this toolkit in partnership with local advocates and others who serve older victims. To gather data for this toolkit, NCALL and OVW conducted a literature review, held national roundtables in 2015 and 2016 with subject matter experts to frame major issues, interviewed key stakeholders, and conducted an external review process. In addition, NCALL conducted videotaped interviews with numerous subject matter experts on key issues and topics covered in this toolkit. Hyperlinks to the video segments created from those interviews are interspersed throughout this summary report document.
Over the years, the World Privacy Forum has developed this list of resources for opting out of publicly searchable data storage sites. The list does not contain all opt outs that are available. Rather, it contains the opt outs that important and will be the most useful to the most consumers. This can be a helpful resource to survivors who have relocated or would like to be sure that their private information remains as private as possible. It is also a good practice for everyone to learn how their data is stored, sold, and available very easily, and how to take back some control over the sea of information available to those who know where to access it.
In this list, some opt outs can be done by phone, some have to be sent in a letter via postal mail, and some can be accomplished online. Some opt outs last forever, some have time limits, and others can be changed at will.

From the National Sexual Assault Coalition Resource Sharing Project:
As coalitions, may we lobby? Should we? It all seems so unclear, and many coalitions struggle with the particulars of lobbying. By its nature, a coalition is the advocacy organization for the state or territory on issues related to sexual violence. Coalitions may and should lobby. This resource presents the current federal guidelines and limitations as they affect coalitions and any coalition staff responsible for lobbying. State provisions also apply and you will need to seek out resources and legal assistance in your state or territory to help your coalition navigate and maintain compliance with any restrictions on lobbying.
