An ally is someone from a nonmarginalized group who uses their privilege to advocate for a marginalized group. They transfer the benefits of their privilege to those who lack it. - Holiday Phillips

Call to Safety approaches domestic and sexual violence intervention and prevention work through a social justice and anti-oppressive lens. We communicate this value through community outreach, continuous training and education for our staff, and by applying anti-oppression theory into our Basic Advocacy Training for incoming volunteers. In the interest of joining the movement for racial justice, Call to Safety recently took on the effort to become an anti-racist organization. We recognize that as we live in a culture that is supported by white supremacy, our work towards racial justice will be on-going and in a constant state of becoming. We welcome feedback from the community at large about how we might better work towards this goal.
