Chicago Metropolitian Battered Women’s Network

The Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network (CMBWN) is a collaborative membership organization that improves the lives of battered women, their children, and others impacted by domestic violence by leading public policy and advocacy efforts; providing education and raising public awareness; and connecting members of the community to direct service providers. The Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network (CMBWN) works toward a future where domestic violence and oppression are eradicated and where women and children are safe in their homes.

The CMBWN believes in a woman’s right to self determination in all a The CMBWN believes in a woman’s right to self determination in all aspects of her life, and that living free from violence is a basic human right. We believe that violence against women is a violation of these rights, and is rooted in a societal imbalance of power and control. We use our collective voice to ensure that, in the face of this violence, every community provides safe, confidential and accessible services for battered women and their children. Our collaborative work to end violence against women is an integral part of a broader social justice movement against discrimination and oppression.
