Battered Women’s Justice Project

Battered Women’s Justice Project (BWJP)

Improve the civil and criminal justice system’s response to intimate partner violence (IPV), as well as addressing the parallel responses of the military services to IPV among their ranks

In addition to a main office in Minneapolis, BWJP manages the National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith and Credit, and partners with the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women, which provides assistance to IPV victims charged with crimes and their defense teams.

All three offices provide technical assistance and training to professionals engaged in these systems: advocates, civil attorneys, judges and related court personnel, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, probation officers, batterers intervention program staff, and defense attorneys; as well as to policymakers, the media, and victims, including incarcerated victims, and their families and friends. BWJP also assists tribal and military personnel who fulfill equivalent positions in their respective institutional responses to IPV.
