Help Save a Local Non Profit in Danger of Closing

From an email:

“Think you could help us out?  I am the Legal Director at a great local non-profit called WEAVE, Women Empowered Against Violence.  WEAVE providers legal, counseling, and emergency services to survivors of domestic violence.  It is one of the few organizations in the country that provides all of these services within one organization.  We have one of four attorneys in the country who specializes in working with LGBTQ survivors of domestic violence.  Sadly, WEAVE is on the verge of closing its doors.  There has been some recent media coverage:
