We Could Not Do This Without You
Your gift enables us to:
- Provide free legal representation to abuse survivors in appeals to overturn trial court decisions that leave them and/or their children at risk of ongoing abuse
- Hold California courts accountable, and make sure the law does what it’s supposed to: keep families safe
- Reach domestic violence survivors in the rural areas who do not have access to legal representation
- Train California attorneys, judges, and domestic violence advocates on important relevant issues so they can better protect children and domestic violence survivors
- Mentor law students to become the next generation of effective, passionate legal advocates on behalf of domestic violence victims
- Ultimately change California law by setting new legal precedent that always prioritizes the safety of children and domestic violence survivors
What is FVAP doing to end domestic violence in California?
By appealing and publishing cases that prioritize the safety and well-being of California kids and survivors, FVAP is setting new, binding statewide legal precedent with a larger goal in mind: ending the inter-generational cycle of abuse and trauma by keeping kids out of abusive homes. Children are far less likely to become abusers themselves if they grow up in safe, healthy environments, free from abuse.
In this way, FVAP is building a better California for the next generation, one case at a time.
