A Safe Place Family Justice Center

"[Survivors] pathway to justice, safety, and hope was made possible by a dynamic legal incubator, one of many now proliferating across the country. The model is straightforward. Law schools build partnerships with a local legal service provider or a social service agency, or they develop their own support program for newly graduating sole practitioners. The goal is simple: help them to succeed in a solo practice and challenge them to provide pro bono and low bono legal services for those unable to otherwise have access to justice."

Our legal incubator program is one of the many being started across the country! CWS is currently hiring for a LEAP managing attorney. Please share this opportunity widely!

Clackamas County, Oregon
Strangulation during an act of domestic violence is now a felony in Oregon (rather than a misdemeanor). We talk with Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Sheriff Craig Roberts and Clackamas Women's Services Executive Director Melissa Erlbaum about why the change needed to happen and what it means.

This was filmed at A Safe Place Family Justice Center, a phenomenal organization that is dedicated to improve the lives of survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and elder abuse through empowerment, coordinated service and collaboration. More on them at www.asafeplacefjc.org.

And remember: If you or someone you know needs help, call the Clackamas Women’s Services 24-hour crisis line at 503-654-2288. ... See MoreSee Less
