CCADV also honored State Representative Mae Flexer as its Coalition Crusader for her tireless efforts at the State Capitol to strengthen our laws and enhance protections for victims. The Connecticut Police Chiefs Association (CPCA) was also honored with the Larry and Shirley Bostrom Pillars for Change for their dedication to training and intervention initiatives that will strengthen the response of law enforcement to victims of domestic violence.
In 2011, CCADV honored the inaugural class of the First 100. Honorees included business, government and community leaders who are committed to making a difference in the lives of domestic violence victims. The event is also an opportunity to raise funds to support programs and public awareness initiatives for victims.
