Colorado is the first state on our 50 Days of Awareness.
In the state of Colorado, nearly half the murders are committed by an intimate partner.
Children, age 18 and under, comprised 43% of Colorado shelter residents in 2007.
In 2007, 6,341 individuals were turned away from shelters in Colorado due to a lack of capacity, a 7% increase from 2006.
Those 6,341 individuals could be helped by DEMi if they knew she was out there. Help us let Colorado know that they need DEMi in their arsenal in the fight against domestic violence and sexual assault.
