Creating a safer community by eliminating sexual and domestic violence.
The WRC functions to create a reality which recognizes the value and equality of women in all aspects of life including economic independence, freedom from violence, and equal access to and power in the political process. We recognize and advocate women’s rights to self-determination and self-direction, and the end of all forms of oppression of women and children.
The WRC was founded in 1978 by a group of women committed to the common mission of ending domestic violence and sexual assault.
The staff and volunteers of the Center continue to dedicate their efforts to ending sexual and domestic violence and all forms of oppression of women and children.
