Description: 

This webinar will consist of an analytical and philosophical conversation addressing the needs of sexual assault survivors within communities of color. The webinar will place this conversation in the context of the recent large scale testing in several communities of untested (backlogged) rape kits that have revealed a disproportionately high number of untested kits where the victim was a person of color. Based on their experiences nationally and in the Michigan 400 Project, Condencia Brade from Sisters of Color Ending Sexual Assault and Debi Cain from the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board will be discussing key issues that are intended to broaden the perspective of those who work with sexual assault survivors in communities of color. They will address the unique challenges and provide strategies for working with survivors of color when reopening years or decades old sexual assault cases when evidence was only recently tested. This webinar will consist of an analytical and philosophical conversation addressing the needs of sexual assault survivors within communities of color.

Description: 

Domestic child sex trafficking is among the most heinous abuses of children, but because of a lack of awareness and the hidden nature of this vulnerable population, survivors are often criminalized and placed behind bars when they are in fact victims of crime.  Please join OJJDP’s National Training and Technical Assistance Center, and the National Girls Institute for the Webinar, “Child Trafficking, Girls, and Detention: A Call to Reform,” on September 10, 2013, from 2:00–3:30 p.m. ET. Presenters will share information about how in many states, victims of domestic child sex trafficking are being arrested and detained for juvenile prostitution and prostitution-related offenses; the victims’ need for trauma-informed, gender specific services instead of being subjected to conditions of confinement that exacerbate their trauma; and the largely hidden nature of this crime, which causes many victims to go unidentified and to fall through cracks in our juvenile justice and child welfare systems. The presenters will also discuss what juvenile justice facility staff can do to identify and assess for commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking within existing caseloads, so they can connect these youth with vital services and interventions.

Description: 

The investigation of sexual violence requires the very best from our criminal justice system. The individuals who commit these crimes, particularly those of the most violent nature, must be identified, captured, and brought to justice before they assault again. The investigation of these crimes, however, is remarkably complex and requires extensive cooperation and active communication across disciplines.This two-hour Policy and Practices Forum will convene experienced and knowledgeable subject matter experts in various fields contributing to the investigation and processing of cases involving sexual violence. The presenters, whose experience spans decades, will discuss the complex relationship between law enforcement, science, medicine, and the judicial system. As they will explain, innovative jurisdictional practices and scientific research producing valuable solutions and insight can empower our criminal justice system to better respond to acts committed by sexual predators. The result of these enhanced approaches is the better collection of evidence, faster laboratory testing, improved case management, and more reliable prosecution of offenders.
