Description: 

Please join Just Detention International for an informational briefing about the problem of prisoner rape and the importance of promulgating national standards to end this abuse.

Speakers will provide first-hand accounts of their experiences as survivors of prisoner rape; insights into the challenges and successes of early adopters of the standards as recommended by the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission; and information about the Department of Justice's recently-released national survey that, for the first time, provided an incidence rate of sexual abuse behind bars.
