First fund-raising challenge starts today – we have one week to raise as much money as possible our our voting page to win 5 extra minutes of stage time!
The hard-rockin’ R23s return on June 20th to defend their title of “Best Lawyer Band in the Bay” at the 2018 Family Violence Appellate Project’s Battle of the Bands! Supporters can vote for the R23s by making a donation on their fundraising page. Votes can be cast in any amount, and there is no limit to the number of times you can vote. The band that raises the most money wins! And the donations go to a very important cause — the Family Violence Appellate Project, the only legal aid nonprofit in California dedicated to helping low-income survivors of domestic violence by appealing dangerous trial court decisions on their behalf, for free.
Votes also can be cast in person at the event, but the bands with the most votes leading up to the event will have a great advantage, so vote early! All votes for this band will be directly donated to Family Violence Appellate Project and are 100% tax-deductible.
About the Family Violence Appellate Project (FVAP)
The Family Violence Appellate Project is transforming the power of the civil legal system and leveling the playing field for survivors of domestic violence. In many cases, survivors have also suffered financial abuse and cannot afford to appeal a trial court decision that puts them or their children in danger. At FVAP, we believe justice should be available to everyone, not just those who can afford it. We partner with pro bono attorneys from California’s top law firms and corporate legal teams to provide free, high-quality legal representation to survivors, giving them the best possible chance at success in their appeal. We win 74% of the affirmative appeals we bring to court on behalf of CA survivors — far above the statewide average of 20% — and 100% of appeals we defend.
About The R-23s
Named the “Best Lawyer Band in the Bay” after playing their way to victory at the 2017 Family Violence Appellate Project “Battle of the Bands,” Lieff Cabraser’s R-23s play songs by The Clash, Otis Redding, Cream, Chuck Berry, and more as modern day inheritors of the spirit of classic rock and roll. The R-23s feature Elizabeth Cabraser on drums, Phong Nguyen on guitar, Elizabeth Schneider on guitar and keyboards, Djuna Gray on bass, Melissa Gardner on vocals and flute, Anthony McDaniel on vocals, and Connie Jorgenson on vocals. Don’t miss the chance to support a great cause and see them live on June 20th!
