The National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence across the Lifespan (NPEIV) is an overarching group of practitioners, academics, organizations, agencies, and coalitions that embrace a national, multi-disciplinary and multicultural commitment to the elimination of all forms of interpersonal violence. We believe it is a basic human right to be safe at home, at school, in our communities, and in our interactions 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, NPEIV has developed and is endorsing a set of recommendations based on research, best practice and common sense which, if fully implemented, would dramatically advance the goal of ending interpersonal violence. That document is a fully referenced treatise which provides the bases and justifications for the recommendations set forth. The present document is an executive summary of those recommendations. The reader is directed to the parent document for a more detailed explanation, citations, and supportive documentation.
