The purpose of this special collection is to provide resources and an introduction to reproductive justice, focusing particularly on the connections between the elimination of reproductive oppression and domestic and sexual violence. Included is a basic definition of reproductive justice, information about the development and the history of the Reproductive Justice Movement, and related resources. Highlighted in this collection are resources that relate to the holistic well-being of women, families, and communities as it pertains to violence against women and reproductive rights and health. "Reproductive Justice & Violence Against Women: Understanding the Intersections" makes connections between the Reproductive Justice Movement and the Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence Movements in the United States to demonstrate the necessity of collaboration. This collection was developed by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, and the Women of Color Network. Additional resources, including book titles, articles, reports, and journals, can be found by browsing the library at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center or sending information requests to resources@nsvrc.org.

This manual is designed to help violence prevention organizations hire an empowerment evaluator who will assist them in building their evaluation capacity through a learn-by-doing process of evaluating their own strategies. It is for state and local leaders and staff members of organizations, coalitions, government agencies, and/or partnerships working to prevent sexual violence, intimate partner violence, youth violence, suicide, and/or child maltreatment.
 
The manual discusses seven steps an organization might take to hire an empowerment evaluator from preparing for the hiring process to assessing and sustaining the evaluation. Resources, worksheets, and sample documents are included to make the hiring process easier. The manual also includes “Field Notes,” documenting the experiences and lessons learned from CDC’s DELTA and EMPOWER grantees in hiring empowerment evaluators.
