March 3-4, 2015
Registration is now closed.
A vibrant, diverse and innovative group will come together this March to relay one message to our legislators: we need to end domestic violence in our state. With millions of Californians impacted by abuse, our movement has responded with solutions that meet the diverse needs of survivors and families and span a wide range of issue areas, including economic security, improving the criminal justice response, and prevention. At the Partnership, we know that the best policies are formed when the challenges and triumphs of survivors and communities are heard—and that is the purpose of Policy Advocacy Day. Our members will join us on March 3rd and 4th, and speak directly with legislators, ensuring that they know about the Partnership’s opportunities to increase safety and empowerment for survivors.
With over 100 pieces of legislation successfully passed, our coalition’s momentum has never stopped. The voices of each of our members makes our unified message of ending domestic violence in California all the more powerful.
Policy Advocacy Day is generously sponsored by Mary Kay, Inc.
Legislative Advocacy Day
March 2014 Summary
This year’s Legislative Action Day was a huge success for the Partnership. The Partnership welcomed over 100 members and representatives from Mary Kay, Inc. Together participants were able to share their work, learn how the Partnership’s Public Policy team promotes our priorities, and meet legislators to talk about the importance of domestic violence programs and services in their communities and throughout California. Overall the event was a success and the Partnership looks forward to next year.
Members attended over 65 meetings with various legislatures. During these meetings members spoke about the need for continued DV funding, support for AB 1547 & AB 2089, as well provided their personal stories. For a look at the take-aways, click here.
