Hickenlooper Signing of HB 1259
CCADV ‘s former Public Policy Director, Amy Miller, sponsors Representative McCann and Senator Newell, and supporters look on as Governor Hickenlooper signs CCADV’s legislative overhaul of child custody and civil protection order statutes, House Bill 1259, into law on May 14, 2013.

The safety and rights of survivors of domestic violence and their children from every community in our state are directly affected by local and state laws and policy.

That’s why the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence proactively advocates at the state Capitol and with other governmental agencies to address domestic violence. We work closely with Colorado’s domestic violence shelters and programs to understand the ongoing and emerging needs at the local and state level, and then we ensure that policymakers at the state level hear and understand those needs. CCADV also works closely with national domestic violence coalitions and Colorado’s Members of Congress to help them understand the needs of those affected by domestic violence in Colorado at the national level.
