ABOUT US: The Coalition was started in 1994 as a grassroots organization and has been instrumental in establishing a domestic violence unit within the Fall River Police Department. The Coalition has also initiated the Safe Child Visitation Center, sponsored a White Ribbon Campaign comprised of men against domestic violence, hosted interactive plays, silent marches and vigils and conducted a poster contest for area schools and numerous other events and fundraisers. All of the Coalition's efforts champion the concept of zero tolerance towards domestic violence.
