Description: 

The Colorado Advocacy in Action Conference is co-hosted annually by the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA). The Coalitions collaborate on this event in order to provide training and education that is based on best and promising practices for addressing sexual and domestic violence, and to ensure that services for survivors are as consistent and comprehensive as possible. Colorado Advocacy in Action is the only statewide conference specific to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence advocacy and is intended for victim service providers as well as affiliated professionals. We hope it also provides an opportunity for advocates in the sexual and domestic violence field to connect with their counterparts and build a collective voice to further our work to end sexual and domestic violence in Colorado.

Keynote Presentation - Moving into the Light: Surviving in the Anti-Immigrant Age by Mónica Ramírez

Millions of immigrants have lived in our nation’s shadows due to our country’s broken immigration system.  Among them, scores of undocumented women have been forced to suffer in silence out of fear of retaliation against them by their exploitative employers, abusive partners or law enforcement if and/when they dared to speak out.  Ms. Ramírez will provide perspective into the fears, strengths, challenges and successes that she witnessed as she accompanied her clients on their journey out of the shadows.  She will share lessons learned and advocacy tools that helped her navigate the rocky, turbulent and, often, murky waters of the civil immigration, civil litigation and criminal process.

About Mónica Ramírez

Mónica Ramírez is an activist, attorney, author, teacher, and speaker.   Daughter and granddaughter of migrant farmworkers, Ramírez has been a farmworker, anti-sexual violence, women’s and immigrant rights activist for nearly two decades. She is recognized as one of the nation’s leaders in the movement to end workplace sexual violence against farmworker and low-wage immigrant women.

Description: 

Join the many advocates, activists, survivors and allies working to end domestic violence for this critical conference aimed at challenging and informing those working within the movement and/or "system" to provide the most effective solutions and support to domestic violence victims. At each NCADV conference, we work to connect and empower victims and survivors of domestic (and other forms of) violence through specialized workshops and discussion sessions, strategy sessions, survivor institutes, caucus meetings, our Survivor Speak-out, and other organized events aimed at providing a space for victims and survivors to process their experiences, connect with others and heal. Our conference themes, workshops, presenters and events are structured to provide victim service providers and allied professionals with the information they most need to guide, challenge and improve their work.
