Assembly Select Committee on Domestic Violence

Policy event
  • May 8, 2019, 9-11 a.m.
  • Room 126, California State Capitol

Help us make a strong showing at the Capitol this Wednesday! We have an excellent opportunity to present our case to the Assembly Select Committee on Domestic Violence about why sexual and domestic violence prevention matters. Assemblymember Blanca Rubio, Chair of the Committee, is our state budget champion — helping us advance our proposal to fund $50 million in community-based prevention efforts. Let’s show support! If you’re within driving distance of the Capitol, we’ll be in room 126 at 9 a.m. We’ll look forward to hearing from preventionists in three panels: Working With Youth, Culturally-Specific Prevention Work, and Engaging Influential Adults and Peers. There will be time for public comment after the panels conclude.
