African American Caucus
The mission of the African American Caucus is to bring about awareness of domestic violence within the various African American communities and families throughout Texas. The caucus addresses oppressive social, economic, and institutional issues that perpetuate and encourage domestic violence within African American communities throughout the state of Texas.
The African American Caucus is committed to our warm rich heritage, rejuvenation of spirit and souls, and critically thinking about and improving our roles in ending family violence in Texas for women of color. We welcome all activists of color to join the African American Caucus.

Prevention Coaching Group
TCFV’s Prevention team launched the Prevention Coaching Group in 2010 to support prevention efforts around the state by creating a community of practice and offering targeted training and program implementation guidance. The Coaching Group consists of prevention workers from both rural and urban communities who gather twice a year in Austin. This community of practice teaches and learns from each other’s prevention efforts. The Group also celebrate successes, share strategies, and solve problems.
Current participants report that the Coaching Group has proved to be a great resource. One participant at the last Coaching Group gathering said “Because of this coaching group my agency was able to retain its prevention funding. This group provides endless information, support and inspiration. I love the coaching group!”
The Prevention team is pleased to announce that the Group is expanding, and interest forms are currently being accepted. Please consider whether your prevention program could benefit from targeted technical assistance, training, and support for your prevention workers. More detailed information about the Prevention Coaching Group is included in the application form, which can be downloaded here. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2012.
Please contact María Limón (firstname.lastname@example.org ), the Prevention team member who is coordinating the Prevention Coaching Group, if you have any questions about the application or participation in the Group.
