DAWN is a trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and transformative justice-based agency to provide multi-faced services to the survivors and the community to understand and address power-based violence by providing direct services and education.

As DAWN’s mission is to promote healthy relationships and reduce abuse in the Deaf community of the Washington DC area, we emphasize that all forms of violence are intersectional. We work with survivors who have many identities and these varieties of identities decrease their right to their own safety and autonomy.
