As a means to get to know member program advocates better, the ICADV Director of Policy traveled around the state and facilitated five meetings with anti-domestic violence advocates. What she heard was both enlightening and alarming. It became clear that ICADV needed to share these findings with the lawmakers, advocates and supporters that can make a difference in the lives of Illinois families living with domestic violence. ICADV developed a report that identifies several trends that are blocking domestic violence survivors from fully accessing the Illinois Domestic Violence Act for protection of themselves and their children.
