Ilene Stohl, MPH, has been active in the movement to end violence against women since 1992 and has worked as an advocate in shelters and community based domestic violence programs across the country. Since coming to the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) in 2003, she has worked on the Economic Justice Project and launched WSCADV’s prevention work in 2009. Ilene transitioned the organization from having a heavy emphasis on intervention to integrating a focus on prevention across WSCADV’s projects. Highlights over the last few years have included: developing In Their Shoes: Teens and Dating Violence, a scenario-based interactive training kit; leading WSCADV’s first ever Summer Camp, where advocates and their teenaged children came together to learn from one another; and initiating the Teen Leadership Council (TLC) on which WSCADV will base its future youth work and prevention programming.
