NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP TO END INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE ACROSS THE LIFESPAN (NPEIV)
The NPEIV is an overarching group of individuals, organizations, agencies, coalitions, and groups that embrace a national, multi-disciplinary and multicultural commitment to violence prevention across the lifespan.
Our organization is committed to reducing interpersonal violence and its consequences through scientific research and application of empirical findings. Through our many partnerships and collaborations, the NPEIV is beginning to make great strides in pursuing this goal and becoming an umbrella partnership of the many organizations, agencies, and advocate/victims working to end interpersonal violence in the U.S.
Our Mission: To make the prevention of interpersonal violence a national priority and to encourage healthy relationships by linking science, practice, policy and advocacy.
Our Vision: To end all types of interpersonal violence, for all people, in all communities, at all stages of life.
Our Guiding Principles:
• Acknowledge and understand the impact interpersonal violence has on individuals and society;
• Recognize the mental, physical, legal, medical, social, and economic burden of interpersonal violence;
• Respect an individual’s basic right to live without violence;
• Value human dignity;
• Promote consensus-based practices while maintaining cultural sensitivity;

THE NATIONAL PLAN TO END INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE
The National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence across the Lifespan (NPEIV) is an overarching group of individuals, organizations, agencies, coalitions and groups that embrace a national, multi-disciplinary and multicultural commitment to the prevention of all forms of interpersonal violence. We believe it is a basic human right to be safe at home, safe at school, safe in the community, and safe when interacting with the institutions of our society. Additionally, all people should have equal access to effective systems of protection, justice, health and education. Accordingly, it is our mission to work towards eliminating all forms of interpersonal violence, for all people, in all communities, at all stages of life. To this end, this document summarizes a number of recommendations based on research, best practice and common sense which, if fully implemented, would dramatically advance the goal of ending interpersonal violence. Read and endorse the National Plan.
