June Broad of the Month: Raana Simmons!
This month, The Broadview Denver has chosen Director of Policy Raana Simmons as their Broad of the Month!
“Simmons moved from Florida to Colorado in November 2015, to take the position of Policy Director for the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA) and finish her Masters in Public Affairs at the University of Colorado, Denver. The work she does for CCASA is never ending. The legislative season can be brutal both in schedule and in negotiation. Sexual assault is an issue few legislators think about, let alone want to talk about. Simmons actively develops relationships with legislators and the widespread, varied stakeholders on the issue to ensure supporting survivors and holding offenders accountable is a priority in Colorado. It’s hard not to get caught up in her energy for this work. Whether it’s an eye roll in response to some asinine comment she heard, or a beaming smile in response to a recent success, her bold, down-to-earth, funny demeanor is inspiring.”
