About the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence
The Idaho Coalition identifies, supports, and thrives as an intergenerational, multi-racial, multi-cultural organization for the benefit of our team, our work, and our movement to end gender violence. Our focus is girls and women, and people who are gender oppressed, who are impacted by or at risk of gender violence inextricably connected to and fueled by multiple, systemic oppression. Our approach works to interrupt the root causes of gender violence and the multiple systemic oppressions – sexism, racism, able-ism, hetero-sexism, and other forms of domination, extraction, and violence.
We envision compassionate communities with social equity and collective liberation; where we see our own and each other’s full humanity and everyone has the ability to thrive; where the dominant narrative is one of interdependence, resilience, and regeneration.
Liberation for the last girl. Our north star is the embodiment of our vision, values, and purpose. How we understand a problem informs how we imagine solutions to be. The “last girl” concept means placing those most marginalized by society at the center of our work so the solutions we imagine can work for them. Understanding the lived-experience of the most marginalized populations and the impact of societal forces on their lives, helps us more fully understand the reality of those who are made invisible by many mainstream organizations. We work to upend this paradigm and amplify voices from historically marginalized communities and make the last girl’s experience visible. When we intentionally center solutions on the last girl, then the root causes of violence will likely have been addressed for all.
Compassion – We see each other’s full humanity with love and kindness, and intentionally turn toward others to end suffering and oppression.
Interconnection – We understand our interdependence and the importance of authentic respectful relationships with one another and our earth.
Lead Boldly – We cultivate an appetite for risk-taking, an openness to possibilities, and going into the unknown.
Social Equity – We amplify voices, lived experience, and histories of marginalized communities to achieve shared power and an equitable distribution of resources.
Collective Liberation – We move forward together knowing that our collective humanity is connected to the liberation of the most marginalized person in our community, the last girl.
