National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: The mission of the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women is to secure justice for battered women charged with crimes related to their battering and prevent further victimization of arrested, convicted, or incarcerated battered women.
  • History:
    National Clearinghouse staff provide customized technical assistance to battered women charged with crimes and to members of their defense teams (defense attorneys, advocates, expert witnesses and others).

    The National Clearinghouse does not provide direct representation to battered women charged with crimes. Rather, staff provides information and resources to defense teams at any stage of the legal process (pre-trial, when the case is on appeal, and in limited circumstances, during post-conviction proceedings) in an effort to increase the likelihood of a better – and more just – outcome.

    The National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women is the first and only national organization that focuses exclusively on battered women charged with crimes. Over the years, the National Clearinghouse has been instrumental in increasing public awareness about the many complex issues facing battered women who end up charged with crimes and in building alliances among national, state-wide, and local organizations and countless individuals to work to stem the tide of injustices facing battered women defendants and incarcerated battered women.

    In addition to providing individualized technical assistance, National Clearinghouse staff conduct training seminars for members of the criminal justice and advocacy communities, and for the general public, regarding the unique experiences of battered women defendants. Our Resource Library contains a comprehensive collection (over 11,000 entries) of articles, case law, litigation materials, and legislation relevant to battered women who find themselves in conflict with the law. ">The National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women, a nonprofit organization founded in 1987, is a resource and adv...(read more)

Not Under Bondage: Abuse, Adultery and Desertion

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: Does the Bible permit divorce for domestic abuse? May a divorced Christian remarry? Christian teaching on divorce and remarriage has varied widely. Interpretation of the biblical texts on divorce and remarriage has been hotly contested and the debate is still very much alive.
  • History:
    She was converted to Christ in 1981 but for a long time had minimal biblical teaching and lingering confusion due to her former beliefs. She got sidetracked into other areas and did not get to church for nearly 14 years. Unaware that Christians should avoid marrying non-Christians, she married an unbeliever in 1989 and the couple had one daughter.

    The marriage gradually became abusive and she occasionally took refuge in a women’s shelter. In 1994 she left her husband and started attending church and Bible study. That was when she became a professing Christian. Child custody was contested but eventually awarded to Barbara, with the husband granted access.

    After four years her separated husband made a profession of faith and they reconciled as a married couple. The abuse recurred and she separated for the last time in 1999, divorcing a few years after that.

    Many years later, she met a man who attested to being a fellow survivor of domestic abuse, and who assured her that he passionately supported her work on domestic abuse. He appeared to be a genuine Christian. She married this man in 2010 but the marriage ended in 2012 because of abuse. What he said didn't end up matching what he did.">Barbara Roberts has been raising awareness of domestic abuse within the conservative evangelical church since 1999. She is a ...(read more)

Jennifer Ann's Group

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: Preventing teen dating violence through awareness, education, and advocacy (+video games) in memory of Jennifer Ann Crecente
  • History:
    Good, decent people that want to help out a friend are sometimes murdered in cold blood.

    And the bogeyman isn't always under the bed.

    Sometimes he's the kid that lives down the street.

    Our organization is going to do everything that it can to ensure that no other parent has to be awakened in the middle of the night by friends pounding on the door. No more groggy-eyed astonishment. No more shocked out-of-body emptiness.

    No more realization that nothing will ever be the same again. Nothing.

    We will educate young people about danger signs. About warning signals. About indications that they are in above their heads and not immortal.

    And then we'll point them in the right direction - toward the many groups that offer assistance, counseling and protection. We will not rest until every young person has been educated about an epidemic that impacts over 20% of our teenage population*.

    Ignorance will not be an excuse. We won't stop until this knowledge is as fundamental as looking both ways when you cross the street.

    I can't bring my baby back. Jennifer is gone, and as powerless as I may be about that, I refuse to allow this to continue unabated. Please join our forum on Teen Dating Violence so that you can join in conversations about this worldwide problem. We are a young organization but have ambition, passion and an energy borne of desperation.

    Please keep Jennifer in your hearts and prayers. I sincerely wish you could have known her.">Jennifer Ann Crecente was a high school honors student that was murdered by an ex-boyfriend on February 15, 2006. Our group w...(read more)
