The Pro Bono Work to Empower and Represent Act of 2018 (the “POWER Act”) aims to help victims and survivors of domestic violence gain access to pro bono legal services. Under the Act, the chief judge in each judicial district must host at least one public event annually to promote pro bono services to empower survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Chief Judge Geoffrey Crawford, in collaboration with United States Attorney Christina Nolan and Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George, announces a virtual public discussion on strategies and planning to reduce domestic violence. The virtual discussion will be held via Zoom on October 23, 2020 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. Those wishing to attend the event can contact Jason Bushey at (802) 951-8125 to receive the Zoom login information.
