The Pro Bono Work to Empower and Represent (POWER) Act was signed into law in September 2018 to help combat domestic abuse and sexual violence. The POWER Act mandates that each year the Chief Judge of each Judicial District across the country hold at least one event promoting pro bono legal services as a critical way to empower survivors of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault, engage citizens, and help lift victims out of the cycle of violence. The bill also requires that every two years an event be held in areas with high numbers of Native Americans and Alaska Natives, with a focus on addressing these issues among Native populations.


A virtual training event will be conducted on Friday, July 19, 2024 in conjunction with various district courts throughout the country.  More information about this event will be provided shortly.
