By joining the Partnership, you become part of a mighty movement.

“Membership has provided me with the opportunity to have a voice regarding state law and policy that affects my community and the victims we serve. Through legislative advocacy, I have discovered powerful new ways to assist my clients and collaborate with colleagues across the state.” – Adam Dodge, Legal Director, Laura’s House
