The campaign also provides employers the training and tools they need to respond to this issue.

On January 30th, 2003, the Coalition launched its official partnership with the Chamber at a breakfast event at the Westin in downtown Columbus. Special guest speakers included Abigail S. Wexner, Founder and Board Chair of the Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence and Chamber President Sally Jackson.
