McCaskill Meets With Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence

U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill this week met with Colleen Coble, CEO of the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, along with her staff, to discuss resources for curbing violence, and to celebrate the coalition’s success in helping push two bills through the Missouri State Legislature, both of which provide victims with necessary resources following such violence. McCaskill, a former courtroom prosecutor of sex crimes, has long been an outspoken advocate for the victims of sexual violence, and in recent years has crafted legislation to curb sexual assault both in the military and on college university campuses. In 2015, McCaskill personally contributed $10,000 to the coalition that led to the creation of a new effort to support interns in Jefferson City who were victims of sexual harassment and assault. “Folks in every corner of our state are lucky to have Colleen and this coalition fighting every day to make our communities safe,” McCaskill said. “It’s an honor to continue working alongside them as we continue to curb these crimes.”
