The Role of Community-Based Advocates in a CCR

The Role of Community-Based Advocates in a CCR

Community-based advocates play key roles in the creation, growth and sustainability of Coordinated Community Response (CCR) efforts, particularly as they respond to crimes of domestic, dating and sexual violence and stalking. In this one-hour, interactive meeting, the presenters will describe the good, bad and challenging realities of their experiences serving as and supporting community-based advocates on a CCR. They will share lessons learned from these experiences, including the role of coalitions to ground advocacy in a CCR, and collaboration with system-based and other community-based members of the CCR. Building off these discussions, small-group work will provide the opportunity for attendees to learn from one another and identify strategies to address challenges associated with their role within their current CCR effort.
