Because of the generous commitment of LACLJ supporters, low-income survivors have access to free legal representation that empowers them to be free from their abusers, protect their children from violence, and be hopeful about the future. Throughout the month of October, we invite you to share the message of our mission in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
In LA County, survivors of domestic violence filed over 21,000 restraining order petitions in the past year. Less than 10% of those victims had legal representation.
A restraining order is one of the first steps to securing a survivor’s safety. In LA County, more women are being killed every year and nearly a third of homicides are by an intimate partner. We must act now to protect survivors and their children.
Creating a personal fundraiser page is easy to do. We’ll give you all the tools you’ll need.
Our total campaign goal is $75,000, which will allow us to pay for court fees, critical advocacy, and dedicated attorneys to secure justice for survivors.
Join us in ensuring survivors have access to life-changing legal representation regardless of their ability to pay.
