The Full Frame Initiative (FFI) set out to understand how people who have experienced domestic violence and others in the domestic violence field define success for survivors. FFI conducted 46 workshops with survivors and practitioners in mainstream, culturally specific and underserved communities and 12 interviews with policy makers and funders, across California. The findings call into question some of the most basic assumptions about the domestic violence field.  FFI will present the details and findings of this groundbreaking project, and share recommendations for action to improve systems and services for people who have experienced violence in their relationships.
