Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Resources and Assistance

About the Commission

The Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Commission is dedicated to addressing and decreasing the rate of domestic and sexual violence occurring in our community.

The creation of a permanent Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Commission was a result of a central recommendation made by Mayor Keller’s 2019 Domestic Violence Task Force. In 2022, the Albuquerque City Council unanimously passed the ordinance formalizing this Commission. This Commission will work to advise the Mayor and City Council on the gaps and quality of effectiveness for domestic violence and sexual assault services in Albuquerque. This collective group of people with lived experience, advocates, service providers, law enforcement and other government agencies will serve as an effective system of prevention and intervention that is responsive to the needs of survivors and those that are at risk.
