On May 21st, we'll discuss how COVID-19 is affecting domestic violence survivors and the organizations who support them. Two organizations, one doing work 'on the ground' and another who focuses on making systemic change, will provide two unique perspectives on what this vulnerable population is facing and how, we as funders, can help.

Each week the LSFN will host a funder roundtable to facilitate funder-specific discussions around the ways in which COVID-19 is impacting the populations served by legal services organizations, and the legal aid organizations themselves. Additionally, we'll discuss legislation being considered to help highly impacted communities, provide information on helpful tools, and explore strategies for funders to support those most affected.
