Equal Justice Works Now Accepting Host Organization Applications for its Crime Victims Advocacy Program
/ Blog Post
Equal Justice Works invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to participate as Host Organizations in the 2023 Crime Victims Advocacy Program.
The Equal Justice Works’ Crime Victims Advocacy Program (CVAP) is mobilizing a cohort of 21 attorney Fellows to increase access to legal aid for survivors of crime, especially in underserved black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities.
CVAP Fellows will work at legal services and community organizations across the country to provide civil legal services for victims of crime. Fellows will work collaboratively to provide legal advice, referrals, and full representation for crime survivors on various civil legal issues arising from their victimization. Fellows will also help enforce their clients’ rights in criminal proceedings, engage in outreach and education activities, and build community partnerships for holistic services.
The two-year Fellowship will begin in the summer of 2023.
