In the Spotlight

October 3, 2018

Silhan Jin is an attorney with the County of Los Angeles and has volunteered dozens of hours of his own time this year to assist community members in need through the Survivor and Family Empowerment (SAFE) Project’s new domestic violence and restraining order (DVRO) clinic.  SAFE’s DVRO clinic focuses on assisting API DV survivors with obtaining restraining orders against their abusers.  The clinic is unique in its focus on serving API survivors.  We asked Silhan to share more about how he came to be involved with our organization and why he chose to give back in this way.
