CCASA Digital Storytelling Project
CCASA is partnering with The Center for Digital Storytelling on this project sponsored by Moms Fight Back to tell the stories of those impacted by sexual violence in Colorado. You may be a survivor, a friend or family member, or someone with deep concern about this issue and what we can do to prevent sexual violence. Everyone has a story to share, and we want to help you create your very own digital story. Learn more.
The Colorado Advocacy in Action Conference is a place to share, discuss, and explore the connections and creative solutions essential to our efforts to end sexual and domestic violence. The Conference will be located at the Vail Marriott in Vail, CO. Visit the conference website for more information and registration.
