At NYLAG, we advocate for our clients, explaining to judges and opposing counsel why trauma reactions can show up in ways we don’t always expect and should not deem a survivor not credible. And we continue to strengthen our efforts to provide trauma-informed legal representation because we believe that access to trauma-informed representation is crucial for our clients’ paths towards self-determination, safety, and security.
#IamCredible highlights how survivors are harmed by outdated understandings of credibility. And how you can help.
