The Project

The goal of my project is to empower survivors of domestic violence to transition out of dependency and victimization through better access to civil restitution, employment opportunities, and public benefits. My project will include litigation and advocacy components focused on expanding the use of monetary remedies in civil protection orders, enforcing the rights of survivors in the workplace, and ensuring access to appropriate public benefits.
