What We Need
Our fundraising goal of $550 covers Alipato Project's office rent for June and July.
Alipato Project's Mission
To ensure the safety and financial wellbeing of families in California by providing legal representation to domestic violence survivors in tort actions against their batterers.
One out of every three women in the world will be raped, beaten, trafficked, or abused in her lifetime. In California alone, law enforcement receives one domestic violence related call every three minutes. Your donation will help us reduce these numbers by supporting the first nonprofit organization to specialize in litigating domestic violence tort cases.
By donating to the Alipato Project, you demonstrate to domestic violence survivors that you believe they deserve attorneys to take on their case.
Litigating domestic violence tort cases not only financially compensates a victim for the harms they endured, but also puts batterers in California on notice that their future misconduct will come at a substantial price.
