Outreach Coordinator, Colorado Address Confidentiality Program
Nikki Hernandez is currently the Outreach Coordinator for the Colorado Address Confidentiality Program (ACP), where she is committed to expanding access to program services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through statewide awareness and relationship building. Prior to coming to the ACP, Nikki worked as a Confidential Victim’s Advocate in a community based victim service agency in which she assisted survivors with safety planning and navigating the court system. As the former Board Chair for Finding Our Voices, a non-profit dedicated to helping survivors of sexual assault heal through art, she worked to elevate survivor voices through their annual art show. Nikki is passionate about developing innovative and systematic solutions for survivors to feel supported throughout the entirety of their healing journey. Driven by her strong sense of social justice, Nikki works to create more equitable spaces in all aspects of her life. As a graduate of the Organismal Biology and Ecology Department of Colorado College, she enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for biology with school-aged children by volunteering with the Catamount Institute and the Denver Botanic Garden’s Educational Programs. She is also developing a scholarship for BIPOC at her aerial silks studio in order to help remove barriers and promote more inclusivity within the aerial silks community. Nikki enjoys infusing intentionality and love into everything that she does, whether it is getting creative with her bread making skills or promoting tradition and ceremony within her own family.
