Despite almost 20 years of hard work to end the re-victimization of battered women who find themselves caught up in the criminal legal system as defendants, the problems that led to the establishment of the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women are still painfully present. The demand for services to address pressing issues faced by battered women charged with crimes, and by those who assist them, continues to grow, and the challenges they encounter have become more complex.

We count on people like you to support our work on behalf of battered women who end up in conflict with the law. We hope you'll consider making a donation. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
