It is easy and affordable to become a member, and the benefits of CCASA membership are countless. As a statewide coalition, CCASA supports local organizations through technical assistance, training, information and referrals, educational materials, news updates, and public policy advocacy. CCASA also provides opportunities to build bridges between those who work directly with survivors and community allies in order to strengthen the collective voice for eliminating sexual violence in Colorado. Because Colorado is a large state with many members not centrally located, CCASA categorizes members based on region. Click here to view CCASA’s regions map.
Types of Membership
Agency memberships are designed for an entire agency or office/department within an agency that will be accessing CCASA resources and services for their staff, volunteers, and clients. In addition to the general member benefits, agency members may access bulk bundles of 50 CCASA publications for distribution to their clients. Their staff members and volunteers may also attend CCASA events at low or no cost. Agency members are encouraged to participate in CCASA committees and ensure that their agencies have a voice on the state level.
Individual memberships are designed for community members and other interested individuals who want to be involved with statewide efforts and access general member benefits. A limited number of CCASA publications are permitted to individual members at no cost and no or low-cost entrance to events is limited to that single member. Individual memberships are not encouraged if you plan to access CCASA publications and events for, or on behalf of, your agency or clients. Individual members are also encouraged to participate in CCASA committees and have a voice on the state level.
Focus areas of membership services
CCASA holds an annual statewide meeting, biannual regional meetings, monthly webinars, local and web-based meetings upon request, networking events, and other opportunities for members and allies to come together. The various events hosted by CCASA are available to members at no or discounted cost and provide the opportunity to collaborate, share resources, and learn strategies for working together as a collective voice for ending sexual violence in Colorado.
CCASA addresses public policy issues which affect survivors of sexual assault on both the state and national level. Coalition representatives provide testimony and educate lawmakers concerning sexual violence in Colorado. Members are encouraged to participate in CCASA’s Public Policy Committee in order to discuss and prioritize current sexual assault policy issues.
CCASA provides training, education, and technical/staff support on a variety of topics to members, at no or discounted cost. We design new trainings on an ongoing basis in order to meet members’ needs; offer web-based training opportunities to save time and resources; work closely with other organizations and agencies in Colorado, as well as statewide coalitions in other states, to bring their experience and expertise to you; and seek to create a speakers bureau of experts in specific fields, or with particular knowledge, relevant to sexual assault services and prevention programming.
CCASA members receive a limited number of free copies of CCASA publications in English and/or Spanish (Toward Healing and Justice: A handbook for survivors of sexual assault; About Sexual Assault; and What Happened?: Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault).
