Every year during our state legislative session, we host a statewide day of policy advocacy and action. Participants learn about budget and policy issues that impact survivors of domestic violence and connect with the legislators who represent them. This event is a powerful way our community comes together to make a big impact for survivors of abuse and their families!

Federal Advocacy Days
We participate annually in the National Network to End Domestic Violence’s Advocacy Days. These take place each Spring in Washington, D.C., and are an opportunity for us to join other state coalitions across the country to advance a collective policy agenda for survivors of abuse. See our Federal Policy Advocacy page for our priorities from the 118th Congress.
