ABOUT THE WEBINAR. From its inception, the VRLC has relied on the expertise and commitment of pro bono attorneys in the community for various purposes--legal representation for sexual assault survivors, legal advice for the organization, and amicus briefs on critical legal issues impacting survivors. This repeat webinar will serve as an introduction to the VRLC’s new “Where to Start” guide that we have created to provide LAV grantees with a foundation from which you can launch a successful pro bono legal project for sexual assault survivors in your community. The Toolkit will officially launch on the VRLC website for LAV grantees on Friday, August 17th so join Stacy to understand the inner workings of the guide before you dive in!
