DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH SPEAKER EVENT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS
On October 20, WIL hosted a panel discussion four attorneys spoke about their experiences working with domestic violence victims. The speakers were Amy Fox from Lifespan, Bridget Healey from the Domestic Violence Division of the State's Attorneys Office, Patricia Hindo from Lifespan, and Mary Trew from Pro Bono Advocates. Topics of discussion included issues relating to immigration and same sex couples. WIL would like to thank all those who attended and helped make the event a success!
