Attorneys and Survivors: Seeking Feedback on New Project to Help Victims

The National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI), in partnership with Pro Bono Net, is developing an online portal to support victims of hate and bias crimes. And they are looking for feedback from attorneys and survivors on its function.

This online portal will offer victim-centered, trauma-informed resources and coordinate pro bono attorneys, who will provide brief legal advice to victims. This pilot program will begin in Oregon with hopes of expanding to surrounding jurisdictions.

NCVLI is seeking attorneys and survivors, who can test the online portal before it is launched. Testing will help ensure the portal is easy to use and accessible for victims. Testers can be from any state. If you are interested, sign up by Saturday, September 30, 2023.

NCVLI receives funding for this project through an OVC FY 2022 Advancing the Use of Technology to Assist Victims of Crime Award.
