Parallel Justice events

If you have an event coming up and think it might be a good way for Parallel Justice to help get the word out about what we do, please contact us and let us know! Some of our recent events include:

3rd Annual Love Your Neighbor's Clothes Swap! This year's Valentine's swap netted more than $1,500 (double last year's take!) for the Victims' Fund as well as generating lots of press for the program. Thanks to all who donated and shopped at Contois Auditorium. February, 2011

ROCK OUT for Victims of Crime! A spring time event that got folks rocking on PS3 powered instruments for prizes. Judges included Councilwoman Emma Mulvaney Stanack, Joe from 95 Triple X and the inimitable ladies from the House of LeMay at Burlington's Contois Auditorium. April, 2010

Love Your Neighbor; Love Your Neighbor's Clothes (Swap). This Valentine's season fundraiser raised over $700 for the victims fund, with all proceeds going directly to help victims meet their basic safety needs. February, 2010
