Biography

Lynne Sprague

Lynne is the Director of Advocacy and Co-Executive Director at Survivors Organizing for Liberation (SOL), formerly the Colorado Anti-Violence Program. A Texas transplant, Lynne became political around her own experiences with intimate partner violence which set her on a course of doing anti-violence work for the last 20 years. Moving to Colorado and working with community groups with intersectional frameworks helped deepen Lynne's commitment to doing broader community work that is rooted in anti-oppression and liberatory values. CAVP is near and dear to Lynne's heart, as it is a place where there is a strong desire and commitment to developing new models for supporting communities targeted by violence and addressing the root societal conditions that create oppression. Prior to SOL, Lynne was the Director at a Colorado-based safehouse and under her leadership the organization changed their gender-based policy to include survivors of all genders. Lynne was also the co-chair of the Grant Making Committee at the Chinook Fund, an activist-based foundation in Colorado. Lynne developed curriculum for a graduate-level course on Intimate Partner Violence for the University of Denver, which she has taught for the last 8 years.
