End Violence Against Women International

Start By Believing

Conference Link

Sergeant Joanne Archambault (Retired, San Diego Police Department) is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer for End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), America’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to improving criminal justice responses to sexual assault. Since its inception in 2003, EVAWI has received almost $9.5 million in public and private funding and provided training and technical assistance to tens of thousands of professionals.

Sgt. Archambault has provided training for tens of thousands of practitioners, policymakers and others – across the country and around the world. She has also been instrumental in creating system-level change through individual contacts, as well as policy initiatives and recommendations for best practice. Despite all her efforts, Sgt. Archambault has long recognized that professional responses will not matter if victims are met with skeptical responses from professionals as well as friends and loved ones. In 2011, she therefore achieved a dream first envisioned while working in the SDPD Child Abuse Unit in 1985 – the launch of Start by Believing, a public awareness campaign designed to transform the way we as a society respond to victims of child abuse and sexual violence. With campaigns now taking hold in 49 states and countless communities, this vision is becoming a reality as we are closer to becoming the first Start by Believing Nation, changing the world for victims, one response at a time (Bio from
