The mission of the Women of Color Network (WOCN) is to provide and enhance leadership capacity and resources that promote the activities of women of color advocates and activists within the Sovereign Nations, the United States and U.S. Territories to eliminate violence against women and families.

WOCN has broadened its mission beyond the fields of domestic violence and sexual assault in order to address a broad range of violence affecting communities of color such as human trafficking and police brutality, and to refocus its theoretical lens to more readily examine a global context of colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, racism, sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of oppression that intersect with violence against women of color.
