Domestic violence is not an issue that stays at home.

With nearly one in three women reporting abuse at some time in their lives, domestic violence affects every workplace.

Silence Doesn’t Work Here is a partnership with employers to help employees, managers, and human resources professionals Recognize, Respond, and Refer victims of domestic violence while ensuring the workplace is supportive of victims and that its policies and procedures are aligned with legal protections for victims.

Resource Fairs & Booths

As WEAVE’s name has become increasingly familiar in the community, requests for our presence at fairs has increased as well. We are grateful that so many organizations value WEAVE’s participation. Unfortunately, this also means that we are unable to fill all of the requests that we receive. WEAVE’s agreement to participate is based on the information and availability of staff. Materials, brochures, emergency cards, etc., will be available for pick-up for fairs even if WEAVE is unable to attend.

To request a representative please contact Erienne at eramos@weaveinc.org or 916.319.4948.

To help us better accommodate your request, please submit a request well in advance of your chosen date.
