Violence Free MN is a state-wide coalition consisting of 90+ member agencies that provide direct services to domestic violence victims/survivors and enact social change within the community. Membership in Violence Free MN offers member agencies access to regional meetings, conferences, and an opportunity to reach out for help if needed. While the coalition staff themselves do not provide direct services, they focus on social change through prevention, policy advocacy, and housing and economic justice efforts.
