ABOUT THE WOMEN'S COALITION OF ST. CROIX
To support and empower people impacted by violence.
Domestic and sexual violence affect us all, everywhere. Supportive services are available, free of charge. We’re here for you. We believe you.
USVI SAYS NO MORE
Join the campaign to end domestic and sexual violence through education, prevention and support for survivors. There is NO room for violence on our islands!

On the Day of Remembrance, we invite you to post on our NDRMV.VI page on Facebook, in recognition of loved ones. We remember and honor those we love. The memories live on, in our hearts and minds.
