Fall Intern Educational Seminar

While most Domestic Violence (DV) services are designed to serve cisgender women in heterosexual relationships, research suggests that the LGBT community experiences DV at a higher rate. Through the LGBT Anti-Violence and Safety Project (LASP), Joey (he/him/his) will provide identity-affirming legal services, outreach, and education for low-income LGBT survivors of domestic violence with a focus on youth.┬áLearn about Joey’s project and domestic violence in Illinois from an Equal Justice Works Fellow doing that work, as well as tips on the Fellowship application process.

SPEAKER:

  • Joey Carrillo, 2021 Equal Justice Works Fellow at Legal Aid Chicago sponsored by Discover Financial Services, Greenberg Traurig, LLP
