Suprises, Spectacles, and Sucesses: Recapping the 2016 Legislative Session
The Second Regular Session of the Seventieth General Assembly convened on January 13, 2016 and is scheduled to adjourn on May 11, 2016. Throughout this time, you’ve been inundated with urgent action alerts, policy podcasts, and even assistance with testifying at the Capitol. Because of your advocacy and activism, 2016 was another remarkable year for advancing survivor-centered sexual assault policy. However, the work doesn’t end with the convening of the session. Now is the time to pull up our sleeves and ensure that our communities are informed and engaged with implementation. From the teen sexting frenzy to DNA collection, we’ll tell you what we saw! This webinar will provide a snap shot of legislation and outcomes of the bills the CCASA Public Policy Team supported or opposed. From big to small, we addressed it all! Raana Simmons, CCASA’s Director of Policy, will provide an overview of pertinent legislation that is law or will soon become law.
