Who We Are
Taiwan Coalition Against Violence (TCAV) is an alliance of 39 NGOs and 35 experts working on the diverse issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, child protection, victim protection, and more. The coalition consolidates the efforts of all affiliated NGOs for advocacy on a wide range of topics and the construction of a comprehensive legal structure and guidelines. In addition to playing a strong role in developing protection services for women and children and coordinating between public and private networks, the coalition created an action plan to implement CEDAW and eradicate GBV, thereby enabling Taiwan to keep pace with international standards.
In recent years, the “Victim-Centered Integration Agenda”, through vigorous promotion by TCAV, has taken off across Taiwan, as is evident in the exchange of experiences and successes in the annual Protection of Women and Children Networking Conferences. As an NGO prioritized in social advocacy and activism, TCAV strives for every individual to live with dignity.
TCAV also hold the 1st and 2nd Asian Summit for the Prevention and Treatment of Gender-Based Violence in 2016 and 2018. Numerous NGOs and scholars who make significant influences on GBV prevention in Asia were invited to participate the summit.
TCAV voices for those in need. We listen to the Victims, care about the Female Issue, and approach to the community to focus on Elder Protection. The main purpose is to fulfill the SDGs by preventing violence, and to ensure that everyone in Taiwan is able to keep free from any violence and abuse.
We want to build a violence prevention system. Therefore, we focus on :
- Justice Initiative: Advocate Gender Sensitivity, Victim-Centered Advocacy and Trauma-Informed Approach in the justice system.
- Violence Prevention: Hold the hot line and regular meetings to work together with different experts.
- Violence Elimination: Empower local groups and organizations for the promotion of CEDAW and SDGs for eliminating violence.
- Media Making Change: Break the stereotype and stigma.
