Reader appreciates domestic violence article, offers help from the Northwest Justice Project
April 23, 2020
To the Publisher:
Thanks for running the interview with the YWCA DV advocates and sharing information about domestic violence in the time of stay-at-home orders. I work for Northwest Justice Project, a statewide nonprofit law firm which helps low-income people with legal needs. We’ve been worrying a lot about escalating DV paired with reduced opportunity to seek help. So the article was genius!
A related, timely reporting idea is the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums currently in force. In addition to the moratoriums, there are programs which may provide monetary aid to tenants to catch up on rent in certain circumstances.
Tyler Graber is an attorney with the Walla Walla office of Northwest Justice Project, which also currently serves Columbia, Garfield, and Asotin Counties. One of Tyler’s primary practice areas is housing. If you have interest in an article about the moratoriums and available financial resources, Tyler is a great resource and I’d love to help put one of your reporters in touch with him. Northwest Justice Project is anticipating heightened eviction defense and assistance once the courts open up.
Best wishes and thanks to you and all the staff at The Times.
