I’m thrilled to introduce this to you. While touring the exhibitors yesterday at the 2009 Equal Justice Conference, I met Rebecca Henry. It was through her that I learned about the ABA/Avon Domestic Violence Pro Bono Directory Project.
The Project is developing a national, searchable, online directory of pro bono programs providing legal assistance to victims of domestic violence.
The directory will be available this summer on ProBono.Net.
And they need attorneys to complete the survey.
There is NO deadline for completing the survey. So complete it at your convenience.
This is especially important now as many domestic violence shelters and legal assistance projects are losing some of their traditional support – and many domestic violence shelters and support services are predicting a rise in domestic violence in the current economic climate.
Please complete the survey! If you’re at the 2009 EJC, you’ll find it in the Exhibition Hall. If not, click here to access the online survey.
And thanks for your assistance in breaking the cycle of domestic violence. And KUDOS to the ABA, the Avon Foundation and probono.net for developing this project.
