IFAP receives Take Action Award from the King County Coalition Against Domestic Violence

IFAP was honored to receive a Take Action Award from the King County Coalition Against Domestic Violence during their awards reception last evening. Award recipients were chosen from an inspiring group of nominees based on criteria including initiative in taking action, use of resources, the action’s impact, and whether the action was something that might inspire others.

IFAP was nominated for the award by Jorge Baron, NWIRP‘s executive director. IFAP’s continuing partnership with NWIRP effectively provides pro bono legal services to immigrant survivors of domestic violence and creates a win/win for everyone involved: eligible clients are moved off a long waiting list, law students get hands-on legal experience, and attorneys have the opportunity to supervise pro bono cases. IFAP is thankful to everyone who makes this partnership possible – especially the hundreds of immigrant survivors and their children who allow IFAP students and attorneys into their lives as they start new chapters free from violence.
