On June 18, 2015, San Francisco will once again be the host of the Family Violence Appellate Project’s Banding Together to End Domestic Violence event which is entering its third year.

The event will bring together bands from California’s top law firms and tech companies to compete in a Battle of the Band’s style competition. The band with the most votes (which are each equivalent to $1) will be declared winner. This year’s competitors include Bad Larry & the Legalese from O’Melveny & Myers, Feeling Lucky from Google Legal and Strongly Worded Letter from Kirkland & Ellis.

FVAP is the first nonprofit organization in California focused on providing appellate representation to survivors of domestic violence in court, therefore helping to augment the safety of survivors and their families.

Banding Together to End Domestic Violence will also be held in Los Angeles in July. Last year’s Bay Area event succeeded in raising over $103,000 and in selling more than $1000 tickets.
