Legislative Updates

The majority of domestic and sexual violence agencies, laws, and public policies benefiting survivors today were started and developed with help from MOCADSV. MOCADSV has been addressing domestic and sexual violence in Missouri for more than 40 years. This overview of Missouri’s domestic and sexual violence laws shows the changes and development of such laws since the Coalition’s beginnings in 1980 and its expansion to a dual domestic and sexual violence coalition in 2006.
