As in years past, PBN’s communications team has created a template press release to help you promote your LawHelp site’s domestic violence resources in your local media networks.

With a little customization it should be ready to go. Don’t forget to submit it to http://www.prlog.org for free distribution to Google News and other search engines, which can help with your search engine rankings. In the past states have also posted this as a news item on their LawHelp and advocate sites.  To learn more about creating and tagging news articles on your LawHelp 3 site, be sure to view this post on the LawHelp3 blog. As appropriate, this information could also be posted to your social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Georgia and Minnesota have customized this announcement and posted it to their respective LawHelp3 sites. Please click below to check out these great examples:

Georgia: http://www.georgialegalaid.org/resource/during-national-domestic-violence-awareness-m?ref=6PJsb

Minnesota: http://www.lawhelpmn.org/resource/october-is-domestic-violence-awareness-month

We hope this helps you spotlight these essential resources during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Feel free to contact Liz Keith at lkeith@probono.net or Pam Weisz at pweisz@probono.net if you have any questions or need assistance taking advantage of this.
