Stoops: I am the Executive Director of a statewide, nonprofit coalition of domestic violence and sexual assault programs in Washington State. We have seventy-three member programs, forty-three of which are state-contracted shelter programs. We have ten tribal member programs and several community-based programs that do their work in a by/for/with kind of way in marginalized communities. You can see that basically I am a bureaucrat in the nonprofit domestic violence and sexual assault industrial complex. I do not say that lightly. It really is an industry and in some ways I am surprised to find myself on a panel about mobilization because I do not often think about the radical mobilizing happening among my constituency.
