Webinar for Victim Service Providers and Advocates
“How Title IX Includes Community Victim Service Providers” Wednesday, November 5, 2014 10:00 am, central standard time

When a jurisdiction reveals that it has large numbers of sexual assault kits that have never been submitted to the lab, it faces a number of complex, sensitive, and interconnected challenges. To better understand the problem and possible solutions, the National Institute of Justice funded multi-disciplinary teams to investigate the issues in Detroit and Houston. The projects engaged key stakeholders (including police, prosecutors, victims, and victims support providers) in partnership with researchers to explore the underlying reasons of why so many unsubmitted sexual assault kits accumulated over time and make recommendations about how best to proceed. In this seminar, the teams will discuss the issues they grappled with: how to triage and process the testing of the kits, when and how to notify victims, and how to make policy and practice changes to both prevent future buildups of kits and enhance the provision of justice for victims of sexual assault.

Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) people are at extreme risk for sexual abuse behind bars. How can you, as an advocate, help LGB survivors?
On October 29, join JDI for a webinar for advocates who want to provide services to LGB people in detention. We’ll discuss the widespread homophobia in prisons and jails nationwide, and how such attitudes allow sexual violence to thrive. Using real stories from inmates, presenters will guide advocates through scenarios and best practices for helping LGB survivors heal and stay safe.
We’ll also review some basic information, including definitions, the prevalence of sexual abuse of LGB inmates, and dynamics of this abuse in both men’s and women’s institutions.
The webinar is geared toward advocates, but anyone who works with current or former detainees is encouraged to attend. This webinar is part of a series that is supported by the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women.

In partnership with the Ms. Foundation for Women, PreventConnect is pleased to announce the third year of the #PowerInPrevention: Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series. With the continuation of an online community to support this movement to end child sexual abuse, #PowerInPrevention transcends from a hashtag statement to the possibility of cultural change. This is the first web conference of the 2014-2015 series.The intersections of vulnerability that occur for children are often most acute when they are apart of marginalized communities. Children of migrant farmworkers are commonly at the center of these intersections because of unique pressures on them and their families. In this web conference, speakers will discuss how they utilize popular education frameworks and principles based on Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed as the basis for their work organizing and mobilizing farm worker communities around child sexual abuse prevention work.
