Voices for Civil Justice
Voices for Civil Justice is a national nonprofit communications hub that uses media coverage to spotlight the critical role of civil legal aid.
We connect reporters with our national network of legal aid sources and help them find client stories and ongoing lawsuits. Pitch and brainstorm story ideas to national and local outlets. Provide messaging guidance and other communications tools to advocates.
Based in Washington DC, Voices has a three person staff and a nine person advisory committee (as of April 2015).
Voices delivers three things:
- Increased visibility for civil legal aid in the national media;
- Improved capacity for media advocacy across the civil legal aid sector; and
- A new and strengthened “brand” for civil legal aid.
Civil legal aid is a wide range of services, including legal representation, easy-to-understand forms, and advice so you can know your rights. It promotes fairness in the justice system regardless of how much money you have and helps people protect their livelihoods, homes, health and families.
Voices was launched in late 2013. Core funders are the Public Welfare Foundation and The Kresge Foundation. Voices for Civil Justice is housed within and legally administered by an intermediary organization, the New Venture Fund.

Requirements of the Registry Are Punitive Discussing the IML Hearing
In this trying time we want to reiterate a few things for our registrants and families. We don't want there to be any confusion or penalties concerning registry requirements during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Make sure you know current requirements. You can go to your Sheriff's Office website to see if there is new information there. If so, we suggest you do a screen print and save it. Call your registry office to get clarification on any questions you might have. Document the date, time, who you spoke with and their instructions regarding any address change, vehicle, employment, travel dates if required, etc.
Keep in mind if you are required to update your drivers license annually through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) you should contact them for their status. Some are limiting the number of people allowed inside and you have to wait to receive a call from them and then come back inside. Document any instructions.Be safe, be smart, stay healthy and know we will get through this.
All information is confidential and we do not distribute any data whatsoever.
