Conference Themes and Topics
The Colorado Advocacy in Action Conference is co-hosted annually by the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA). The Coalitions collaborate on this event in order to provide training and education that is based on best and promising practices for addressing sexual and domestic violence, and to ensure that services for survivors are as consistent and comprehensive as possible. Colorado Advocacy in Action is the only statewide conference specific to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence advocacy and is intended for victim service providers as well as affiliated professionals. We hope it also provides an opportunity for advocates in the sexual and domestic violence field to connect with their counterparts and build a collective voice to further our work to end sexual and domestic violence in Colorado.
