ACF National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women

The National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women, located in Philadelphia, PA, is a partner of the Battered Women¹s Justice Project and addresses the unique needs of victims of battering who, as a result of the abuse they have experienced at the hands of their intimate partner, end up charged with a crime. The National Clearinghouse works to increase public awareness about the many complex issues facing victims of battering who end up charged with crimes and strives to prevent the revictimization of battered defendants by providing specialized technical assistance, resources, and support to victims of battering charged with crimes and to members of their defense teams.
