New year, same great team! This January, both Gina Lopez and Maria Mendez began working with new positions within CCASA. Gina is now our Rural and Indigenous Program Manager. Her new title reflects all the amazing work and responsibilities Gina has taken on within our organization. Maria is now CCASA’s first Strengthening Sexual Assault Services Project Director. While members will still likely see emails and trainings from Maria, her focus will shift beyond training and technical assistance. Congratulations to both Gina and Maria!
Relatedly, CCASA is looking for a new Training and Technical Assistance Manager (TTAM). If you, or someone you know, is interested in managing and implementing many of CCASA’s training and technical assistance activities; serving as the first point of contact for information and referrals, and training and technical assistance requests; check out – or pass along – the full job description. The TTAM position will remain open until filled.
Colorado’s 2022 legislative session began on Wednesday, January 12. CCASA, and our policy committee, are keeping abreast of the bills introduced to the General Assembly. Throughout January, the CCASA policy team has been working with stakeholders across Colorado to support legislation that will make our state safer from violence. If you have questions about CCASA’s positions on 2022 legislation, email our Policy Director, Elizabeth Newman. Be sure to keep an eye on your inbox for ways you can make a difference and support survivors in Colorado.

Annual CCASA memberships are valid from January – December, so now is the time to renew your membership and get the most out of it!
