Today, with state leaders, domestic violence victim advocates and survivors on hand, the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WCADV) announced its name will now be End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin.
“Our new name aligns our identity with our mission,” said Patti Seger, executive director of the organization. “As Wisconsin’s voice for survivors and a membership organization comprised of advocates from across the state, working towards the end of domestic abuse in Wisconsin is the imperative that drives us.”
