The Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence offers training, technical assistance and other resources to domestic violence programs across the state. As a leader in the anti-violence movement, we are also a domestic violence resource for policymakers, the media, and the community.

The Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
Strengthens domestic violence shelters and programs throughout Colorado
We offer training, resource sharing and problem solving to domestic violence programs that serve survivors of domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. We establish and share best practices based on the principles of safety and empowerment through self-determination.
Creates change through our collective voice
The Coalition works to break the silence surrounding domestic violence. We actively engage in policy advocacy and educate elected officials, state and local government employees and other public agencies about domestic violence. The Coalition actively participates on numerous statewide boards and committees to influence initiatives that affect survivors in Colorado.
Engages Colorado in our mission
The Coalition partners with communities in Colorado to raise awareness about domestic violence. We hold an annual Domestic Violence Awareness Month rally and provide resources to assist victims in finding help and safety.
