#UpStander Campaign

We all play a role in combatting intimate partner violence, and New York City is launching a campaign to ensure that no one is a bystander. The City of New York, the Office to Combat Domestic Violence (OCDV) and New Yorkers from all five boroughs are teaming up to put an end to intimate partner violence. Join them in being an #UpStander.

OCDV partners with the Mayor’s Fund, city agencies, community-based and advocacy organizations, local leaders, and service providers to expand access to essential resources for victims of domestic violence and their children. OCDV’s Family Justice Centers provide comprehensive civil and legal services, as well as support and counseling for victims of domestic violence, elder abuse, and sex trafficking.

Family Justice Centers (Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence)
The first New York City Family Justice Center opened in Brooklyn in 2005 to provide a range of centralized services for domestic violence victims. The overall objective of the Family Justice Center Initiative is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing essential advocacy, case management, legal and housing assistance under one roof. Services are provided with the involvement of partner agencies including non-profit organizations, City and State agencies, District Attorney's Offices, and faith-based organizations.

The success of the Brooklyn Center has been replicated in three subsequent centers in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. Development for the City’s fifth Center in Staten Island began in December 2013.
