We regularly convene several cross-disciplinary groups to learn from one another and coordinate community-wide anti-violence efforts. Learn more and join us at our next meeting!

Aspiring White Allies Oregon (AWAO) >>

The vision of AWAO is racial equity, safety and justice for survivors, those who work to support survivors, and ultimately for all people. Allyship means listening to, believing, partnering with, and upholding the voices and experiences of marginalized communities.

Communities of Color Task Force (CCTF) >>

The purpose of CCTF is to generate community awareness, response and commitment – through prevention, education, advocacy, and leadership – to all domestic and sexual violence survivors of color throughout the state of Oregon, regardless of citizenship or legal status.

Faith Communities Workgroup >>

The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence convenes a quarterly statewide conference call for faith leaders and faith-involved advocates.

Human Trafficking Workgroup >>

Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Advocate Workgroup >>

The PREA group’s primary goal will be to offer a safe sharing space for advocates to discuss their experiences and learn from others engaged in similar work. 

Queer Caucus >>

The queer caucus will gather LGBTQIA advocates across Oregon for regular meetings, peer support, and collaborative projects to further our work. 

Technology Safety Workgroup >>

To increase domestic violence and sexual assault advocates' capacity to recognize and respond effectively to technology-facilitated abuse, the Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence has established a technology safety workgroup.
