Working Together for Good: NSNV Volunteers

To celebrate Volunteer Appreciation Month, we asked our volunteers to share what interested them in joining NoSilence NoViolence, and any special memories of their work with NSNV.

“I wanted to join an organization that uplifts and empowers individuals who are experiencing great challenges in life. I was drawn to NSNV because of the work they do providing support to survivors of domestic violence and their families leaving abusive situations.” — Victoria S., Marketing

“I believe in the urgent need to support vulnerable women who have endured unimaginable hardship. Domestic violence affects individuals regardless of their background, but it disproportionately impacts women, making them particularly vulnerable to physical, emotional, and psychological harm. When women support each other, incredible things happen. We create safe spaces where survivors can speak out without fear of judgment or stigma.

Contributing to the development of women is a big part of who I am, and I hope to contribute to a future where every woman feels safe, respected, and empowered to live life on her own terms.” — Erica R., Marketing

“I wanted to use some of my free time to do research and writing for a cause that needed help funding women’s services. NoSilence NoViolence ‘fills the gaps’ in providing immediate support for survivors that many other domestic violence organizations don’t offer, but also teaches healthy relationship classes to youth. I could have benefited from these as a young adult myself, and wanted to help find funding for NSNV to continue their important outreach.

I live in Los Angeles, but even through email and Zoom I feel tightly knit with my peers in working together to raise awareness, promote funding, and aim to eliminate domestic violence in all of its forms.” — Kate T., Grants and Communications

“I’m very proud of the dedicated volunteers that we have recruited to support NSNV. I am only one person, but am better and stronger because of the volunteers. They are the backbone of what we can accomplish. We are a grassroots organization and the opportunities are endless as to what can be done, but also the progress we have already made melts my heart. It is such a worthy cause to know that you are making a difference directly with survivors.” — Charo P., Volunteer Coordinator
