Womans Law - was founded in February 2000 by a group of lawyers, teachers, activists, and web designers interested in seeing the power of the Internet work for more disadvantaged people and specifically for survivors of domestic violence. We pulled together our experiences and resources and launched this website in October 2001.
Facts Court Watch - formed by a coalition of Family Court victims and activists in the South Palm Beach County Chapter of NOW, Families Against Court Travesties, Inc. (FACTS) is primarily concerned that the family court system is harming children by treating them as property, ignoring their rights to contact with both parents, denying their parents due process, and in general not considering the children’s best interests. Some of us are victims of these injustices, some are friends and family members of victims, and some are simply devoted to healthy children and families.
Have Justice Will Travel -
LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN THE VERMONT AREA - The mission of Have Justice--Will Travel, Inc. (HJWT) is to end the generational cycle of abuse in rural families by bridging the legal, cultural, geographical, psychological, and economic gaps that exist for victims of domestic abuse. HJWT provides legal and supportive services for battered, low-income women and their children.
Wynona I. Ward, Esq., the founder and director of HJWT, has created an innovative, mobile, multi-service program that assists victims of domestic abuse through the legal process, from the initial interview and relief from abuse order through self-sufficiency and independence. This holistic multi-service approach to assisting rural victims often is the key to women first escaping the abuse and then moving forward to improving the quality of their lives and their children's lives. Since 1998, HJWT has been serving more women in the State of Vermont and is expanding to assist women who live in rural areas throughout the United States. A satellite office established in Brattleboro, Vermont and the hiring of two new attorneys, Amy Phillippo, Esq. and Kathryn A.C. Kennedy, Esq. have enhanced the capabilities of HJWT.
