Become Part of the LRC
As you may be aware, many survivors of domestic violence flee across state or
tribal lines to escape abuse. Subsequently, they may be punished in interstate
custody cases for having left the original state or tribe with their children.
Attorneys and advocates who understand new federal and state laws can help
survivors relocate safely without sacrificing custody of their children.
Many survivors, however, cannot find lawyers who understand these laws and the
impact of domestic violence to represent them. The Legal Resource Center on
Violence Against Women, Inc. (LRC), located in Takoma Park, Maryland, is working
to increase and to improve the legal representation available to survivors
We need your help to develop a pool of attorneys to represent survivors in
interstate custody cases. If you would be willing to learn more about the
LRC and to potentially participate in its referral list, please send your
contact information (telephone number) to
firstname.lastname@example.org. We will call you to explain our screening process and
