OUR MISSION

The Action Alliance has been Virginia’s leading voice on sexual and domestic violence for over 40 years and enhances response and prevention efforts through training, public policy advocacy, public awareness programs, and technical assistance to professionals.

The Action Alliance, a diverse group of individuals and organizations, believes that all people have the right to a life free of sexual and domestic violence. We will use our diverse and collective voice to create a Virginia free from sexual and domestic violence—inspiring others to join and support values of equality, respect and shared power. We recognize that sexual and domestic violence are linked to other forms of oppression, which disproportionately affect women, children, and marginalized people. Understanding the great harm racism has created for individuals, families, and our communities in Virginia, we commit to building within the coalition an anti-racist framework from which to address sexual and domestic violence.

The Action Alliance is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Black, Indigenous, and other people of color; women; LGBTQ+ candidates; and people of diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. We are committed to a diverse workplace and to supporting our staff with ongoing career development opportunities.
