Thank you!

Our supporters helped us raise over $500,000 for our programs.

Voices Against Violence 2017, the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project’s annual benefit, was a success thanks to our fabulous co-chairs, sponsors, Host and Honorary Committees and other supporters. Ambassador Caroline Kennedy gave inspiring remarks to a crowd of 500 guests on May 16th at the residence of the Japanese Ambassador. In 2018, we are looking forward to celebrating our 10 year anniversary! Stay tuned for more details.

Past speakers include Vice President Joseph Biden (2013), philanthropist Adrienne Arsht (2014), and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (2015) and First Lady Michelle Obama (2016).
