The DVCC Legal Department recently hosted colleagues from around the state at a lunch meeting in order to initiate discussion on domestic violence and the Connecticut courts. Joining DVCC Victim Advocates Andrea Dahms, Jeniffer Cerezo, Katie Evans, Katie Pawlik and Jamie Vargas were eight Family Violence Victim Advocates from Bridgeport, Danbury and Greenwich.

"We talked about what each of us sees in our individual courtrooms, common problems we encounter and current best practices," Dahms said. "This is intended to be the first of an ongoing collective dialogue to work toward systems change."
