The Attorney Poker Tour, hosted by Scott Love, is a charity poker tournament at MGM National Harbor on Feb 23rd, 2019. This event raises awareness in the legal community about "Protect Our Defenders". Nearly half the prize pool ($150 from each entry fee) and all monies raised after expenses are given to Protect Our Defenders.
Protect Our Defenders is an advocacy group helping military members and veterans who have been sexually assaulted, abused, harassed, or retaliated against for reporting. One out of four women on active duty will be sexually assaulted. This group is committed to ending this epidemic by giving a voice to those who do not have one. Protect Our Defenders depends on pro bono support from law firms who wish to contribute to this significant cause. www.protectourdefenders.com
