Description: 

All states and territories must certify that they are in compliance with VAWA 2005 requirements for medical forensic examinations. Specifically, exams must be available to sexual assault victims: 1) free of charge, and 2) regardless of their decision to participate in the criminal justice process.
 
Communities have faced considerable challenges in designing protocols that are compliant, in areas such as: the initial response to a sexual assault disclosure, payment for the medical forensic examination, mandatory reporting to law enforcement, storage and transportation of evidence, case tracking and retrieval, processing of evidence, and the potential for evidence-based prosecution (i.e., without the victim's cooperation). For many states and territories, the changes that are required in public policy and daily practice have been described as "monumental."

Description: 

In this free one hour webinar, Joann Schladale will provide an overview of a clearly defined approach for evaluating and establishing safety after sexual harm by youth occurs. When adults support responsibility, accountability and healing for everyone involved, safety is established and families experience stability, two key factors for trauma recovery. Positive youth development and sexual health provide a foundation for preventing it from happening again.

Description: 

Girls, who understood the link between popular culture messaging and real violence against women, were infuriated by a t-shirt that depicted a boy pushing a girl down with the caption "Problem solved." And so they did something about it! After writing letters, circulating petitions, and speaking at a press conference, the t-shirt was removed from store shelves. In this webinar, Lyn Mikel Brown, Ed.D. will talk about the importance and influence of girl activism to create change large and small. She will share many examples of girls making change, and will provide tools that we as adults can use to encourage girls to use their voices.
