Create Peace

Group of 15 people of diverse backgrounds and ages, smiling togetherTogether, we will create peaceful communities for us all.

Dawn is more than just a name. It is inherent in our philosophy of bringing the subject of domestic violence out of the darkness and into the light by raising awareness and facilitating action in our community. We are leaders, conveners and partners in bringing people together to develop and implement solutions to violence that may begin in the home but whose tentacles can reach into all facets of community life. We train businesses, churches, health care providers, community groups, nonprofit organizations, schools, police and prosecutors — everyone who may come into contact with victims and who cares about creating a peaceful King County — to recognize warning signs of potential violent behavior, to safely speak up and intervene, and to guide victims to safety and services.
