Description: 

Under the 2013 VAWA Amendments to the Clery Act, victims now have the right to an advisor of choice during campus disciplinary proceedings and related meetings that address campus sexual assault, intimate partner violence, or stalking. While attorneys may serve as advisors for victims, schools have the right limit their ability to participate fully in the disciplinary process through the "potted plant rule" codified under VAWA's implementing regulations. Whether allowed to directly advocate, or relegated to the sidelines, attorneys can still be effective in representing the rights of their survivor-clients during campus investigative, hearing and appeals using federal law and administrative guidance under Title IX, the Clery Act and FERPA. While every campus proceeding is governed by applicable schools policies, this training will help attorneys develop the skills they need to enter any educational setting and ensure the federal rights of victims are honored throughout the campus disciplinary process.

How many data, evaluation and research reports have never left your bookshelf? If your answer is one or more, this web conference is for you! Data has the potential to inform, as well as transform, our prevention efforts. However, barriers often impede our application of research to practice. This web conference will highlight how to use data to inform prevention strategies. Specific attention will focus on outlining the range of available data, strategies to incorporate data early on in the prevention development process, suggestions for partnerships, and examples of how to use data to inform prevention strategies.

Description: 

After campus sexual violence, victims are often left in need of institutional support in order to maintain their ongoing access to educational programs and activities. Through effective advocacy, attorneys can secure institutional safety measures, such as interim suspension, on up to no trespass orders that can keep perpetrators off campus. Attorneys can also work cooperatively with schools to ensure survivors have access to on-campus mental and physical health services without limitation or cost, as well as receive prompt accommodation regarding housing and academics. This training will review how Title IX requires schools to provide survivors with interim safety measures and prompt remedies to address the hostile environment created by sexual violence as a civil rights violation. It will also cover a victims' right to request and receive reasonable accommodations in academic, living, transportation, and working situations after reporting sexual assault, intimate partner violence, or stalking to an institution of higher education. Through acting quickly on behalf of survivor-clients, attorneys can minimize the harm campus sexual violence causes to education access. More information and Registration

Description: 

Move to End Violence, a program of the NoVo Foundation, set out to learn more about the barriers that prevent people from taking action on the issue of violence against girls and women. Through a series of focus groups and a national survey, NoVo worked with Lake Research Partners to understand how different communities, including those traditionally underserved, overcome these barriers to engage people to get involved in meaningful ways. Then, they worked with Springboard Partners to translate that research into recommendations for action.

Please join Lake Research Partners and Springboard Partners for a webinar to discuss the research findings and introduce the Move to End Violence Research Into Action Guide, a set of practical recommendations you can use in your work to inspire people to take action to end violence against girls and women.

Three leading sexual violence prevention organizations announce the creation of “Raliance,” a collaborative initiative dedicated to ending sexual violence in one generation. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the PreventConnect/California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence have joined together to compose the new entity. This significant moment in the prevention movement is being made possible through a multiyear, $10 million commitment from the National Football League – the first-ever major corporate funding of sexual violence prevention initiatives.

An 90 minute informational web conference will be held on Tuesday, July 12 at 10:30am Pacific (11:30am Mountain, 12:30pm Central, and 1:30pm Eastern). The intent of this webinar is to provide the audience with an overview of the grant program to include information about the partnership, eligibility, timeline, new grant management software, funding categories, funding amount available, and eligible and ineligible expenses.

Description: 

Like all adult survivors of abuse, older adults have a complex set of circumstances and often poor options to consider. Latin@ older survivors may face additional barriers requiring service providers to examine how they are currently delivering services and how their policies and practices may help or hinder an older survivor. During this webinar, presenters will share their experiences and lessons learned as they observed World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Presenters will share available resources for the field to help address elder abuse and promote elder justice. Additionally, they will provide tools developed specifically for Latin@ survivors and their families. Finally, presenters will discuss how the complexity of these situations often requires organizations and communities to work together in new and innovative ways to meet the needs of older survivors.
