Please join us as we recognize the 2016 Class of statewide leaders who are working to improve conditions for victims of domestic violence and their families in Connecticut. Now in our sixth year, we are pleased to annually recognize the meaningful efforts of 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.

Funds raised through the First 100 Plus Breakfast & Awards Ceremony are utilized to support our public awareness efforts, work not traditionally supported by government grants. Our state has averaged 14 intimate partner homicides annually over the past decade with few of those victims ever having availed themselves of services prior to their deaths. Your generosity directly impacts our efforts to ensure that every victim of domestic violence knows where to turn for help.

Call for Nominations!

We need your help as we select members of the Class of 2016. It is through big ways and small that people are making a difference in the lives of victims of domestic violence. Do you know a person from your community or profession who goes above in beyond when helping victims 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 work to help individuals experiencing domestic violence.

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 2016. Thank you!
