Honoree Adrienne Arsht and Vice President Joe Biden

The D.C.Volunteer Lawyers Project -- which works to protect women, litigate for them and get them out of domestic violence situations -- saluted its main benefactor, Adrienne Arsht, at the Japanese ambassdor’s residence May 15. Arsht rounded out her contributions to DCVLP by completing her donation to $1 million and said the group “stands up against evil.” Georgetowner Leslie Morgan Steiner, author of “Crazy Love,” spoke of the benefits of women “having an advocate” in a city with more lawyers per capita than any other. Also, at hand was supporter, Vice President Joe Biden, who gave an impassioned speech against men who abuse women -- “the worst sin” -- and told the group it was “a lifeline.”
