Join us Wednesday, March 24th at 6pm EST to celebrate Women’s History Month!
DV LEAP #WomensHistoryMonth series features Carrie Goldberg, founder of C.A. Goldberg, PLLC and author of Nobody’s Victim, in conversation with DV LEAP board member and the author/producer of And So I Stayed, Natalie Pattillo!
This Women’s History Month, Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project (DV LEAP) is presenting a series of virtual conversations with leaders in survivor advocacy. In the next installment on March 24, our founder Carrie will be discussing her book and her expertise as a victims’ rights lawyer. Her New York Times Editor’s Choice book, Nobody’s Victim: Fighting Psychos, Stalkers, Pervs and Trolls details the cases and clients that helped her to become the lawyer she never had.
Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project (DV LEAP) makes the law work for survivors of domestic violence by challenging unjust trial outcomes through appellate litigation, consultation and training, and partnering with advocacy organizations to improve policy and laws. Standing with core values of justice, intersectionality, client-centeredness, transformation, and integrity, DV LEAP has over 40 years of experience leading survivors through the domestic violence legal system. Carrie was honored to be given the 2020 DV LEAP Joan Meier Founders award, an honor created to celebrate the legacy of Joan Meirr and recognize lawyers who have “transformed the legal landscape for domestic violence survivors.”
Natalie’s documentary And So I Stayed is a documentary about survivors of domestic abuse who are incarcerated for fighting back against their abusers in self-defense. Natalie is a multimedia journalist and serves as a DV LEAP board member advocating for Domestic Violence support.

“A timely, necessary and uniquely authoritative book about the modern-day scourges of on-line harassment, stalking, sextortion, and non-consensual porn–and how to fight them. Her book is also a strikingly honest memoir and a riveting read. The stories she tells illuminate real horrors, as well as real bravery–her own and that of the people she represents.” — Margaret Talbot, staff writer, The New Yorker
