The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Public Policy

The Basics

GCADV advocates for improvements in those systems which respond to domestic violence victims and offenders.  GCADV does this by engaging in legislative and public policy advocacy within the Georgia General Assembly, with domestic violence services funders, and with other policy-making bodies to ensure that the interests and rights of domestic violence survivors are protected and upheld.  GCADV also works extensively with its member programs to engage them in legislative and public policy advocacy on issues that affect domestic violence survivors and their children.
