Partners Against Violence and Injustice in Michigan

Okemos, Michigan

Partners Against Violence and Injustice in Michigan (PAVIM) is a collaboration between the Arc Michigan, Developmental Disabilities Institute at Wayne State University, Michigan Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence, and Michigan Disability Rights Coalition. The PAVIM Project partners represent organizations that provide statewide leadership in the areas of domestic and sexual violence, disability advocacy, and anti-oppression work.  This group came together to improve the accessibility and responsiveness of organizations and service providers for people with developmental disabilities who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault.

Our Unique Contribution

PAVIM has helped build the capacity of a pilot site in Ann Arbor (Washtenaw County) Michigan to provide meaningful, relevant, and comprehensive services to adults with disabilities who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault.  They support two agencies, the Washtenaw Association for Community Advocacy (a local Arc Chapter) and Safe House Center, to create policies and procedures to improve physical, programmatic, and attitudinal accessibility and responsiveness.
