VOICES AGAINST VIOLENCE


The Voices Against Violence service project is a call to action for young lawyers to raise awareness about and prevent domestic violence. We accomplish this goal through pro bono representation, fundraising and education. The YLD Voices Against Violence committee maintains a volunteer list for those young lawyers wishing to volunteer to represent victims in domestic violence proceedings on a pro bono basis.

We work with the Bluegrass Domestic Violence Program, the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association and the Jefferson County Family Court Domestic Violence Intake Center in matching volunteer lawyers with clients. In addition, the YLD hosts fundraisers and awareness events throughout the state to raise money for these worthwhile community organizations.

The Voices Against Violence program also seeks to educate KBA members and the community about the epidemic of domestic violence. We organize and host continuing legal education programs around the state and during the New Lawyer Program to instruct young lawyers on issues relating to Emergency Protection Orders and Domestic Violence Orders.

The Voices Against Violence Committee also hosts a roundtable discussion at the KBA Annual Convention, where attendees can discuss the impacts of domestic violence across the Commonwealth and legislative issues concerning the same. If you would like to be a Voices Against Violence volunteer attorney, or if you would like to become involved with the Voices Against Violence Committee, please contact Roula Allouch at Roula.Allouch@libertymutual.com.
