Please join us as we recognize the 2015 Class of statewide leaders who are working to improve conditions for victims of domestic violence and their families in Connecticut. In our fifth year we are pleased to announce that CCADV will begin to recognize the meaningful efforts of both MEN AND WOMEN across our great state who are boldly stepping forward to advance policy and practice around serving victims of domestic violence. As the state’s leading voice for victims of domestic violence and those who serve them we fully recognize that we cannot make progress alone. It truly is the work of so many that embolden our opportunity to help people at their most vulnerable time.

About our honorees...

The Jackson Family - On May 7, 2014, Lori Jackson, a young mother of two taking all of the right steps to keep herself and her children safe, lost her life trying to end an abusive relationship. Through their grief and unimaginable loss, Lori's parents, Merry & Douglas, sister Kacey and other loved ones tirelessly advocated for increased protections for all victims of domestic violence, attending several hearings and events at the CT General Assembly to tell their story in hopes of preventing another family from experiencing such tragedy.

Robinson+Cole - Robinson+Cole has long sponsored several programs at local courts where lawyers in their firm provide pro bono assistance to victims seeking civil restraining orders. The firm has recently worked to establish a larger network with additional firms so that more victims may be reached throughout the state.
