Representatives from CALCASA Public Policy were pleased to participate this year’s National lobby day for Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. Every California delegate that received the group also assured their support for fully funding VAWA and the California victim service providers that depend on federal funds. Additionally, conversations with key staff members covered issues ranging from the timeliness of Federal funding availability to expansion of primary prevention campaigns and everything in between.

CALCASA members are making a difference!   Said one staffer of California’s voice in DC: “I have received nearly a dozen letters from your members this morning. When [CALCASA and victim advocates] can generate that type of awareness in a timely and coherent fashion, we listen.”

Your letters to our federal delegation numbered more than 60 and counting after only one day!

CALCASA Public Policy would like to thank those of you who have registered and taken action through our Online Grassroots Advocacy system. With just a few clicks, each of you has made your voice heard on the other side of the country on some of the most important issues facing victims and survivors of sexual assault in California.
