Understanding Rape In Prison
This PCAR information packet is designed for sexual violence advocates to learn more about working with prisons.
In 2003, the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was passed, and the PREA standards for corrections were introduced in May 2012. This packet will help advocates prepare to work with prisons as they implement PREA standards.
The packet includes: Facts about Sexual Assault in Prison, PREA-A Pennsylvania Perspective, Commonly Used Terms in Prisons, How to Implement an Institution-Based SART, What Happens when a person is Incarcerated in a State Prison, Working with Victims who are Inmates, and Understanding Rape in Prison
