How does the Commission support the work of gender-based violence attorneys?

The Commission supports gender-based violence attorneys through the trainings it offers for lawyers, as well as by creating publications and practice tools. The Commission also works on legislative issues that directly impact gender-based violence laws.

Why should someone donate to the Commission?

Because training and supporting lawyers who are at the forefront of the domestic violence movement is imperative. The work is hard, and many of the skills needed to do the work successfully and to stay in the movement are not taught in law school outside legal clinics.
