During times of economic distress, free legal services for survivors are needed at increased rates, making our mission more critical than ever.
We are moving forward with the 2020 Black & White Ball presented by Accenture to raise money for our free legal services for victims of domestic and dating violenc, sexual assault and stalking, but we realize not everyon can attend this virtual event. Through sponsorships and auction donations, last year the Black & White Ball raised over $520,000, representing a large portion of our annual operating budget.
