The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence rallies for the interests of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. This work includes participating in the shaping of legislation and public policy. Every legislative session, we organize awareness day events at the Oregon State Capitol, testify at public hearings, and educate stakeholders on the issues surrounding domestic and sexual violence.
