The Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) is a private, not-for-profit corporation composed of member organizations throughout the state which are committed to the common goal of preventing and eliminating domestic violence by providing a statewide network of services and through exposing and educating about the roots of such violence.
The Coalition was founded in January, 1978 when representatives from ten domestic violence organizations met to plan a unified request for funding from the state. The Board of the ICADV began the deposit of materials in DePaul’s Archives in 2003, through collaborative programs with faculty and students in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at DePaul. The initial deposit of materials consisted of 52 feet of organizational documents, newsletters, training information, and publications. The finding aid reflects the processed portion of that initial deposit.
Processing is ongoing and the finding aid will be updated regularly to reflect that activity. For inquiries as to unprocessed materials, please contact DePaul University Archives.
