In addition to engaging on pending legislation, the Partnership has several Public Policy & Research Subcommittees focused on specific policy areas. Consider joining one or more subcommittees to share your expertise and issue-specific knowledge.
Court Access & Language Access for Victims
This newly-formed subcommittee will address issues around court access in the face of current court closures and other budget cuts. In addition, this subcommittee will address language access for survivors both in the courts and as part of criminal justice response.
Criminal and Civil Justice
The Criminal and Civil Justice Sub-Committee is responsible for researching and providing recommendations to the statewide PPRC for DV emerging topics in policy and systems change related to the criminal and civil just systems.
This new subcommittee will focus on the federal policy areas that directly impact domestic violence programs and survivors. The Federal Policy Subcommittee will focus on annual federal funding, VAWA, VOCA, FVPSA, and other relevant federal policy areas.
The Funding Sub-Committee works to develop and support funding proposal(s) that will sustain and enhance public and private funding and resources for domestic violence prevention and response.
Immigration & Domestic Violence
Recognizing that there is an overwhelming number of victims of violence who are faced with immigration issues, the Immigration & Domestic Violence Sub-Committee takes action on issues that may affect this group of survivors.
Teen Dating Violence (TDV)
The Teen Dating Violence Sub-Committee advocates for policies and institutional practices to promote healthy relationships and prevent TDV.
