Movement Makers

Every two years, Move to End Violence partners with a group of inspired individuals from the thousands of talented leaders working to end violence against all girls and women in the U.S.  Over the course of their work together, these individuals strengthen their capacity in the areas of Transformative Leadership Development, Liberation and Equity, Organizational Development, and Movement Building for Social Change, in order to build power in their communities and the movement. We call them Movement Makers.
