“The VRLC Portland office launched the Legal Assistance to Rape Survivors Project (LARS) to provide free civil legal services to victims of rape and sexual assault in Multnomah and Washington counties. The pro bono project provides direct legal services to survivors in the areas of privacy, safety, immigration, education, employment, housing, and public benefits. Since the launch of the project in April 2013, VRLC has provided free legal services to over 100 victims of rape and sexual assault.

Attorneys interested in volunteering for the project are welcome to attend an orientation training on Wednesday December 3, from 4–5:45pm at the Washington County Law Library (111 NE Lincoln St Ste 250-L, Hillsboro OR 97124-3036). Staff attorneys Emily Brown Sitnick and Stacy Hankin will talk about the pro bono project, as well as provide an overview of Oregon’s new SAPO and the civil legal remedies available for survivors.
