Project Overview

We would like a graphic designer and copy editor to create an infographic on how to request a protective order for people in domestic violence situations.
In a recent article, Jefferson Parish cited that the homicide rate for domestic violence situation have doubled this year, likely due to the stay-at-home orders resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Free legal service organizations have also reported an increase in calls requesting assistance with leaving a violent home situation--more calls than they can reasonably assist. To address these incredible statistics, Louisiana Appleseed created a series of how-to videos with support from the Louisiana Bar Foundation's Community Partnership Panels that educate the public on how to secure a temporary restraining order or protective order. Our goal with this project is to direct the public to our videos and otherwise educate the public on a court process that could mean life or death in Louisiana.
We have created the video series and it is live on YouTube.com at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKDvR_ywBeFKa6q_2kLRcYg/. We are also setting up video sessions with domestic violence shelters across the state wherein staff can ask questions about the process to a practicing attorney from their area. This is a form of train-the-trainer that will allow direct service providers to domestic violence survivors that do not have access to a full-time attorney to increase their capacity to serve.
