Advancing Advocates Council

Join us to build safer communities!

The Advancing Advocates Council (AAC) is comprised of the next generation of leaders committed to supporting survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and sending the message that violence should never be expected or tolerated.

The AAC shares the work of The Women’s Center and furthers their mission to provide safety, shelter, and support to empower all impacted by domestic abuse, sexual violence, child abuse, and trafficking. The AAC serves, educates, and advocates on behalf of the agency to their peers throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
