Statement – Rose Brooks Center’s Commitment



Rose Brooks Center is here. This is our promise to victims and survivors of domestic violence, and to the thousands of lives impacted by the trauma it creates.


In our work of supporting victims and holding offenders accountable, we are committed to recognizing the trauma that violence and racial injustice creates in our community and addressing the legacy of systemic injustices. Our hearts continue to break for the lives lost and the senseless violence impacting Black clients, staff and community, and we will continue to work to be part of the solution to end racial injustice and hold perpetrators accountable.
We want you to know that we will continue our work with our judicial, city, and law enforcement partners to ensure survivors’ voices are heard throughout the entire judicial process.


We want you to know, we are committed to equity and inclusion through intentionally practicing and integrating it into every aspect of our work to ensure a safe, respectful and welcoming environment.
And we restate our commitment to keeping victims safe by seeking accountability and ending systemic racism throughout all of our work.
Our commitment and focus on our mission will continue to guide us as we work side-by-side to overcome challenges, and welcome each new day with new strength.
