how we support and stand with victims and survivors

COVA strives to raise the understanding of victim and survivor concerns and barriers within the consciousness of policy makers and the general public. Victim and survivor rights are recognized as an essential element of the criminal justice process and healing. To further these goals, COVA addresses public policy issues both inside and outside the legislative arena. COVA monitors proposed bills and advocates on issues relevant to crime victims and those who serve them on a daily basis. Legislative advocacy involves coalition-building; assisting members in identifying and implementing ways to educate their communities, and raising awareness and knowledge of crime victim and survivor issues. COVA also monitors federal initiatives and issues that affect victims’ rights.
