Colorado Forensic Compliance Evaluation Project
This project explores and documents how forensic compliance is currently being implemented, and tracks forensic compliance cases from the medical forensic exam through prosecution in two jurisdictions, the 2nd Judicial District (Denver County) and the 9th Judicial District (Garfield, Pitkin, and Rio Blanco Counties).

Colorado Rural Initiative to Strengthen Sexual Assault Services
The CRISSAS project supports the development and expansion of services to Latinx and Native American survivors of sexual assault. We are working with four project sites, the Domestic Safety Resource Center in Lamar, the Hispanic Affairs Project in Montrose, Sexual Assault Response Advocates in Fort Morgan, and Sexual Assault Services Organization in Durango. Additionally, this grant supports the development of resources, training, and technical assistance for other rural communities interested in building their capacity to serve these populations. For more information, contact Agueda Morgan, Director of Programs, email@example.com.
Digital Storytelling Project
CCASA partnered with The Center for Digital Storytelling on this project sponsored by Moms Fight Back to tell the stories of those impacted by sexual violence in Colorado. The digital stories created for the CCASA Digital Storytelling Project were shared publicly during April 2015 for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Our hope was to create digital stories that can expand the public understanding of sexual violence in Colorado and deepen our collective community commitment to supporting survivors and preventing this crime.

PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) Project
Through this project, CCASA hosted a 2-day statewide PREA Training in May 2018, a series of 5 webinars in the first half of 2019, workshops at the 2019 annual Colorado Advocacy in Action Conference. CCASA also developed a PREA toolkit that explains PREA and how community-based advocates can respond to victims who are incarcerated, a brochure with information for survivors who are incarcerated (available in English and Spanish), and an online training module focused on serving survivors who are incarcerated. Additionally, CCASA partnered with the Rocky Mountain Victim Law Center to examine the intersections of PREA and the Colorado Victim Rights Act, which resulted in a white paper and webinar.
