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 of Oregon (AWAO) >>

The intention of this workgroup is to provide a space for accountability and processing for folks who benefit from white privilege as we collectively strive to engage in anti-oppression and efforts to dismantle racism.

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.

Development and Communications Crew >>

The Development and Communications Crew connects folks doing grant-writing, fundraising, outreach, and marketing for community-based domestic and sexual violence advocacy programs. 

Faith Leaders Workgroup >>

The Faith Leaders work group is a multidisciplinary group that meets to share resources and best practice at the intersection of faith communities and the DV/SA system.

Healthcare Advocate Workgroup >>

This is a new workgroup focused on connecting folks across the state who are providing services at the intersections of S/DV and healthcare. 

Human Trafficking Workgroup >>

More information coming soon!

People of Color (POC) Caucus >>

The POC Caucus is a multidisciplinary work group that is for folks who identify as a person of color. The POC group meets to discuss topics that will empower them to provide equitable services to survivors, advocates, and communities of color that are marginalized within domestic and sexual violence advocacy work. 

Prevention Workgroup >>

The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence will be hosting a new workgroup focused on violence prevention. This will be a space to share resources, discuss prevention efforts, and collaborate with other prevention folks from across Oregon. 

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 gathers 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.
