Celebrating Justice Virtual Event

News Story

Join us virtually on Thursday, October 8, to celebrate the necessary and transformative work of the Pace Women’s Justice Center (PWJC), a free legal service to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse. Through outreach and training, PWJC saves lives and effects change.

The Pace Women’s Justice Center (PWJC) provides free legal services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse. A nonprofit legal center serving Westchester and Putnam Counties, PWJC helps individuals navigate the legal system and obtain services related to divorce, custody, support, financial exploitation, public benefits, and housing. Through outreach events and training programs we raise awareness, educate the community, and train judges, police officers, attorneys, and social service providers on best practices when working with victims of abuse. And now, the entire Pace Community is coming together (virtually!) to celebrate their incredible work for one night of networking and programming.

This year, PWJC will be honoring the Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation for its support of the C.A.R.E. Program and helping PWJC provide clients with peer support when they need it the most—in court. Learn about the volunteers and impact of the program, as well as the many ways PWJC CARES for its clients and their journeys away from abuse at this very special event:
