Brian O’Connor accepts the award on behalf of Futures Without Violence.

The San Francisco Division is pleased to honor Futures Without Violence for its efforts to end violence against women and children. Futures Without Violence organizes programs that are focused on building stronger and more educated communities, teaching boys how to be respectable men, counseling abusive men, counseling abused women and children, and preventing violence against women on college campuses. The organization works to end violence by guiding children and teens into developing healthy relationships.

In addition, the group works with health care providers to help them identify and provide the proper treatment for victims of domestic violence, and with judges to help them make more informed decisions and rulings in domestic violence cases. Futures Without Violence also partners with corporations to help create safe workplaces and enact policies that help prevent violence.

In a ceremony at FBI Headquarters, Director Robert S. Mueller, III recognized the recipients of the 2011 Director’s Community Leadership Award. These leaders, selected by their area FBI field office, have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service. The FBI is grateful for the work of each of these individuals and organizations on behalf of their communities.

“Whatever the motivation—an unfilled need, a tragic occurrence, a desire to give back—these are people who make things happen and enlist others in their cause,” said Director Mueller. “They are activists who have earned their prestige through good works.”
