CCASA has established itself as an advocate voice on sex assault issues, victims of sexual assault and public policy at the state legislature and in the criminal justice arena.  I was honored to be a part of the CCASA Board for 9 years. The CCASA staff does much of the heavy lifting and collaborates well with other system and non-system based advocates for victims.
