GLSP takes law out of offices, into communities we serve
GLSP engages with communities all over the state beyond just representing individuals in legal cases.
Consider these examples:
–GLSP staff in Macon, Gainesville and exurban Atlanta conducted Law Enforcement and roll-call trainings on domestic violence and enforcement of protective orders, including information about gun laws, law enforcement reporting requirements and the dynamics of family violence.
–Staff in North Georgia did a training for faith-based leaders, who are often the first people victims of family violence turn to for help.
–A Savannah staff member did a law enforcement and advocate training on domestic violence at Hunter Army Airfield.
–Two Columbus staff members did a training for lawyers and community groups in that area.
–And one of our Macon attorneys did a “Cut It Out” presentation to hairdressers on how to counsel and refer DV victims.
