Welcome to Violence Free Minnesota
The Coalition to End Relationship Abuse
(formerly Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women).
Founded in 1978, we are a statewide coalition of over 90 member programs working together to end relationship abuse, create safety, and achieve social justice for all. We represent victims and survivors of relationship abuse and member programs; challenge systems and institutions; promote social change; and support, educate, and connect member programs.
Together, we can make Minnesota a violence free state.
Relationship abuse is when one person uses a pattern of behaviors and tactics to gain and maintain power and control over a current or former intimate partner.
