Why Mother Justice Network?
Our purpose is to unleash “Superhero Survivors” of abuse, and equip communities for effective response to family violence. We will change how community professionals work with protective parents and their children to create safety for families chronically targeted by abusers.
We prioritize the human RIGHT to safety, health and well-being for adult and child victims of abuse. We believe abusers bear the sole RESPONSIBILITY to change their coercive and controlling beliefs and behaviors that lead to intimate partner abuse, family violence, post-separation coercive control, and counter-parenting.
We are focused on survivor-identified needs and goals, because survivors are the best judge of their safety, survival and self-actualization needs. We promote responses that account for the WHOLE survivor, and her dreams and desires for herself and her entire family.
We model trauma-responsive service, because survivors deserve spaces where their natural trauma reactions are understood, and they are safe, believed, respected, admired and encouraged for their tenacity in the face of abuse. We prioritize creating space that feels safe for the victim, while honoring our own safety needs.
We are driven to create social justice within every system, profession, and practice that currently contributes to the ongoing abuse of protective parents and their children. We seek feedback from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, poor and non-Christian communities to improve our own responses to our communities’ most silenced survivors.
