Legal Advocacy Project

We do not provide direct advocacy or legal advice/representation for survivors, but we can help connect you to those who do! Please contact your local domestic violence advocacy program to learn about legal services in your community and check out these statewide legal resources.

We provide training and support to legal advocates to help them understand how the legal system works, how to help survivors navigate the legal system, and how to advocate within the legal system on behalf of survivors. Check out our resource library, online training courses, and upcoming events.
