The legal system can look very intimidating to survivors of abuse, their family, friends and loved ones. The Speaking Out Safely team is committed to making the legal system as comprehensible and accessible as possible in the short term while working to overhaul the system in the long run.
We have split this part of the site into three sections:
- Being your own lawyer: for survivors of abuse please go here and see our programs dedicated to helping you navigate the system.
- Being a support system: for the friends and family of a survivor go here and see our programs dedicated to helping you be there for a survivor.
- Resources: whether you are a survivor or a supporter go here and see our programs geared to towards education, training and other resources to help us create our new world free from abuse.
