Outreach & Training

DVP consistently offers free education to service providers and the community at large.

Our attorneys and clinicians offer forums and legal clinics on-site at schools, hospitals, other agencies and local libraries throughout the five boroughs of NYC.

In addition, we provide legal education through technical assistance in group and individual environments. In a typical month, our staff hosts 10 education and outreach events to varying size groups.

In 2020, we launched a series of virtual Know Your Rights trainings, which can be viewed here.

One of the most powerful ways you can have impact on the lives of survivors of intimate partner violence is to vote. Here is a useful guide for voting in the 2020 presidential election.

Our staff are able to provide trainings on the following topics and more on request:

  • DV101
  • Family Law Basics
  • Immigration Law Basics
  • Financial Abuse
  • How to E-File Family Offense Petitions
  • Cultural Competency Trainings
  • Domestic Violence within the LGBTQ Population
  • Domestic Violence and Disability
