Working to create change in the prevention, intervention, and response to domestic violence, dating abuse, stalking, and sexual assault.

Our vision is of compassionate communities with respect, equity, and justice for all human beings. In this vision, we will work together to make our communities stronger as a whole; and in turn, create powerful future generations where violence against girls and women is no longer a common occurrence and violence in all our communities is no longer accepted.

The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence knows that mobilizing the energy, passion, and commitment of high-school students across Idaho is an essential first step towards realizing our vision for change. To that end, we are launching Our Revolution Youth Leadership multi-day workshops for Idaho high- school students for over 3,000 high school students over the next three years.

"We have the ability to change the world around us for the better, teens are the way to do that, we can educate our peers and change mindsets to create a safer, more accepting society in the future."

- Clea, Idaho Coalition Teen Activist

Our Revolution Youth Leadership workshops will focus on providing participants with the awareness and tools they need to become leaders in the movement to end violence and create more compassionate communities. Over the next five years, our goal is to empower more than 3,000 high school students to create a better world by coaching them in the skills and confidence necessary to becoming community activists and organizers.

"Social injustice has been an issue for many generations; help ours be the last."

- Cole, Idaho Coalition Teen Activist

Be part of our movement – engage in the Our Revolution: A Movement Building Conversation Guide with Teens to End Violence! Social movements often begin with conversations - conversations among everyday people about the change they want to see in their own lives, their communities, and the world. Our movement to end violence also needs to begin there! Our Revolution is a guide for anyone who is interested in facilitating a conversation among high school students about building a movement for compassionate, peaceful communities with respect, equity, and justice for all human beings. During the month of May 25 activists, advocates, educators, or allies who facilitate a conversation and answer a brief survey will be randomly selected for a $100 incentive!
