Support For SURVIVORS
Through legal counsel and therapeutic art programming, LOTUS Legal Clinic supports survivors of sexual violence and human trafficking as they move toward a better future.
LOTUS believes in survivor-centered, self-determined justice and healing through creative legal and humanities-based pathways that address harm, disrupt systemic barriers to well-being, and provide meaningful platforms for survivor engagement and leadership.
Our legal services include: Crime victims' rights enforcement, criminal record relief, immigration representation for survivors of human trafficking and/or sexual violence, civil restraining orders, school & workplace advocacy & protections, and consumer law issues related to victimization.
We do not handle family law, child custody litigation, or criminal defense.
Valuing a wholistic approach to survivor wellness, LOTUS' therapeutic art programs aim to engage, empower, and heal survivors through the practice of literary art and unique collaborations with local artists working in the community
We provide both in-person and virtual training for community and legal system stakeholders, including attorneys, law enforcement agencies, and service providers. We tailor the content of our presentations to meet the specific needs of the audience.
For legal system stakeholders, we are able to discuss and answer questions on best practices when providing trauma-informed legal services to survivors of human trafficking and sexual violence.
