Please note the new date!
While we've decided that it would be safer to wait until the spring to gather in person, we do still hope that you will Save the Date and help us celebrate our 11th annual breakfast and awards ceremony on Friday, April 8, 2022! We're excited to see everyone and to induct another class of First 100 Plus. We weren't able to induct a new class last year so we're encouraging all of our partners across Connecticut to help us select a new Class of 2021 full of bold leaders. Calling all past honorees! We hope that you'll nominate others in your community who have followed in your path of working to improve circumstances for survivors and their children and then join us at the breakfast as we commemorate 11 years.
Call for Nominations!

Please join us as we celebrate our 11th annual breakfast & awards ceremony by helping us select the First 100 Plus Class of 2021! In 2011, CCADV's First 100 awards breakfast was established in an effort to recognize leaders working across Connecticut to improve the lives of domestic violence survivors and their children. The needs of survivors are ever-present and have only been exacerbated by the challenges of the pandemic. We know that people across Connecticut have been stepping up in their local communities to support survivors and ensure access to the life-saving services provided by CCADV’s 18 member organizations. Let’s recognize their leadership and commitment to this movement!

Please send us your nominations of individuals working in your community to help improve outcomes for survivors of domestic violence. It is through ways both big and small that people may make a difference. Do you know someone from your community or profession who goes above and beyond when helping survivors and their families? Perhaps a law enforcement officer, educator, medical practitioner, attorney or faith-based leader. We want to hear their story and learn about their efforts to help survivors.

Please use the form below to submit your nominations (you may submit as many as you'd like). Remember, if you don't spell your nominee's name correctly, we won't be able to either. Please be certain to include both your nominee's contact information as well as your own so that we can keep everyone posted on who is selected to join the Class of 2021. Thank you!
