The mission of Allies in Change is to raise awareness of, educate about, and end domestic violence. We work toward this goal primarily by engaging with perpetrators. We acknowledge that some cultural values such as traditional definitions of gender roles and power undermine a person's ability to be fully loving in relationships. We seek to address and change these values on individual, familial and societal levels. As an agency, we seek to practice these values ourselves in both our professional and personal lives.
