Outreach Programs

The USAO/MDFL takes every available opportunity to communicate with its citizens. Frequently we partner with client agencies, educational institutions, and civic organizations to promote the mission of the Department of Justice/USAO and its special initiatives. Our outreach efforts include participation in a variety of events to promote DOJ mission specific topics. To engage the community, our agency regularly participates in community-leadership roundtables, public policy forums, volunteer projects, and special appearances.
