Guidance Regarding Law Enforcement Response to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

Legal Momentum's Senior Vice President and Director of the National Judicial Education Program, Lynn Hecht Schafran, and Vice President for Government Relations, Lisalyn Jacobs, worked together with a small group of organizations to meet with the Department of Justice’s Special Litigation Section to urge them to issue a Guidance on Gender-Biased Policing. This is the group's formal request letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, which was circulated to organizations across the country requesting them to sign on. Eighty-eight national organizations and 98 state and local organizations signed on to the letter.
