Importance of NCCADV Membership
By becoming a member, you become a part of a social justice movement that works to change how North Carolina responds to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), specifically domestic violence, sexual assault in intimate relationships, teen dating violence, stalking, and human trafficking.
Your membership dues allow NCCADV staff to engage in systems advocacy, prevention and public policy work, while furthering NCCADV efforts to incorporate a social justice lens into the larger IPV movement. Dues also support NCCADV’s involvement in various taskforces and committees on behalf of our members to bring the voices of survivors to the table. Through this work, we are able to create positive change that will impact survivors and the organizations that serve them. Member dues help support the systems advocacy, prevention, and public policy work that assists survivors of domestic violence in North Carolina and the programs that serve them.
Membership Benefits for Culturally-Specific Organizations
Starting on February 1, 2021, NCCADV is offering a new membership structure for culturally-specific organizations at a pay-what-you-can rate. This membership type is for organizations, campuses, and other entities that are rooted in and primarily serve historically marginalized communities (specifically those underrepresented in DV services). Examples include, but are not limited to, Latinx organizations, LGBTQ centers, organizations lead by and primarily serving African, Black, and Caribbean folks, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), disability organizations, group who primarily serves Muslim survivors, etc.
Our goal of creating the culturally-specific membership opportunity is to improve representation of and support for marginalized communities within our membership. This new type is not just a discount; it’s also a way for NCCADV to connect more intentionally with the folks in North Carolina doing work rooted in marginalized communities.
Details: Culturally-specific organizations with NCCADV membership receive technical assistance, trainings (including trainings offered to all members on our training calendar, as well as one training by request per year), and regular communications from NCCADV. Culturally-specific organizations are also voting members.
Note: Culturally-specific organizations do not have an entirely separate category of membership; they are still Domestic Violence Agency Members, Community Partner Members, or Campus Members. However, they have a pay-what-you-can membership fee and are partners in NCCADV's growing efforts to better support culturally-specific organizations and survivors from marginalized communities across North Carolina.
Please contact Natalie Pickett, Member Services Specialist, at email@example.com with questions and interest related to membership for culturally-specific organizations.
