While several nonprofits exist to support victims, none provide wrap-around legal services on a national level like SurvJustice.
Survivors have rights that need to be enforced and SurvJustice is the only national nonprofit that provides attorneys to survivor in campus hearings, as well as civil and criminal proceedings. This increases the prospect of justice for survivors who would otherwise be left without support to face a perpetrator using a defense attorney and/or an institution with its own legal counsel.
In 2014, SurvJustice received 108 requests for survivor assistance from 32 states and 3 countries. As of 2015, SurvJustice received a total of 300 requests for survivor assistance from 40 states and 5 countries. Will you help us grow our legal team to meet the needs of survivors in 2016?
