Eileen McCann Recognized For Outstanding Efforts to End Violence Against Women
FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2009

Eileen McCann, the Domestic Violence Project's attorney in the Civil Practice's Staten Island Neighborhood Office, received the "In the Trenches" award from the Lawyers' Committee Against Domestic Violence at its annual domestic violence forum held at Fordham Law School on March 2. The award recognizes: "Indomitable Courage, Vision, and Dedication to Ending Violence Against Women."

Each year, the Lawyers' Committee Against Domestic Violence bestows this award during the Fordham Forum on Domestic Violence. Eileen received the award for demonstrating her commitment to the goals of the DV advocacy community and for her willingness to do the tough, unglamorous work necessary to make significant changes in the lives of individual women and in the landscape of the justice system to which survivors turn for protection and support.
