FVAP is seeking a Housing Attorney Fellow or Housing Legal Fellow to build the capacity and reach of its Housing and Employment Justice Project by deepening FVAP’s connections to underserved rural and frontier communities in California, focusing on communities that have little access or connection to legal assistance. The focus communities of the fellow will partially depend on the skills and connections of the hired fellow.
Did you know that FVAP hosts a monthly legal assistance series for members of the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (CPEDV)? Today at noon we will be answering the following question: “What is the difference between privileged information and confidential information?” Afterward, there will be an open Q&A about confidentiality and mandated reporting.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we’ll be doing our part to raise awareness by sharing resources for survivors and those who support them on our social media channels. On Wednesdays, we’ll be featuring resources that are most accessed through our Legal Resource Library. Make sure you’re following us on our channels and please share our posts and tweets to help us raise awareness this month!

Today we did a training with National Housing Law Project on the protections survivors have under Assembly Bill 2413, which offers housing protections for survivors and others who need to call 911 to summon police or emergency assistance.
Stay tuned for a video of the training, which will be added to our Legal Resource Library soon.

We’re out of moot court and on to oral argument today! We will be arguing as amicus (friend-of-the-court) in the second district on the issue of how to resolve the conflict in the law between a party’s right to attend a civil deposition and the right of a person protected by a restraining order to be protected by the terms of that restraining order.
We’ll be in oral argument today at 12:45 pm in Los Angeles! This case deals with language access and victim-blaming, two issues that, unfortunately, have resulted in survivors not getting a fair ruling in court.
