Peace Over Violence
Description: 

Peace Over Violence is proud to present the Annual Denim Day USA 2010, a campaign to raise awareness and educate the public about rape and sexual assault.
 
In 1998, an Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore jeans, reasoning she must have helped her attacker remove them. People all over the world were outraged. Wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.
 
This day we unite against the sexual assault of girls, women, boys and men. We stand in support of survivors. We break the silence to end sexual violence.
 
On Denim Day, wear your jeans as a visible sign of protest against the myths that still surround sexual assault!

Description: 

This webinar, presented by members of the Houston Police Department, describes the cultural shift that occurred within the Houston Police Department over the last two and a half years as a result of a grant from the National Institute of Justice to examine the issue of untested evidence in sexual assaults. The paradigm shift took more than training or revised protocols, but resulted in the integration of stakeholder services and a renewed focus on victims’ needs; both which improve sexual assault investigations and outcomes for victims.  This webinar will highlight the creation of the justice advocate position and the victim notification project as two components that clearly contributed to the culture change.
