Wednesday Outreach

In Sexual Assault Awareness on June 22, 2011 at 1:15 pm


Please see the attached flyer for details about the upcoming opportunity for public comment to the Governor’s DV Advisory Board on issues related to service gaps for underserved populations (elderly victims, victims with disabilities, and victims with mental health issues).  Comments can be made in person at Tuesday’s subcommittee meeting in Richmond or submitted in writing. 

Also, the Network is willing to sponsor the trip (paying mileage and a lunch stipend) for a limited number of advocates/victims wishing to travel to Richmond to speak.  If interested, please contact Network President Becky Sirles at becky.sirles@vadoc.virginia.gov  or by phone at (804) 674-3081 extension 1180 for more information.

Also, if you are unable to attend but would like for the Network to speak to your concerns on this issue, please feel free to forward to Becky information on cases/examples of service gaps / system failures with regard to these underserved populations.
