We are thrilled to announce that the 4th Reclaiming Our Love: Social Justice & Domestic Violence Conference will take place in person at the Gleacher Center at Chicago Booth on March 19-20, 2025.

Measuring Safety is Live!

Each year, The Network releases a comprehensive overview of the statewide response to gender-based violence, with a particular focus on domestic violence and sexual violence. Now being released in increments over the course of the year, the first two volumes of Measuring Safety 2023 will address the Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline and the Survivor Fund of The Network.
