Legislative Updates 

In the world of domestic and sexual violence advocacy, many of the regulations and much of the funding are dependent on help from our government.  Here you can find links to articles on other websites that will keep you up-to-date on what is currently happening in the domestic violence/sexual assault field.  

One way you can be an advocate for us is by following upcoming legislation and voicing your support for bills that assist our agency, clients, and survivors. We hope to help you stay informed!
