Legal Advocacy Network
Purpose: The purpose of the Statewide Legal Advocacy Network is to create a safe and supportive place for legal advocates serving in shelter and outreach agencies to network about the issues surrounding the role of helping victims of domestic violence access the legal system.
Mission: The Mission of the Statewide Legal Advocacy Network is to communicate resources, skills and ideas among legal advocates serving in shelter and outreach agencies for developing programs that promote the safety of persons affected by domestic violence, hold abusers accountable, encourage the sensitive and thorough response of agents in the judicial system, and diligently work for positive change at all levels of government.
