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.
Sessions at the conference will focus on youth alcohol and drug abuse prevention; bullying and cyber bullying; violence prevention in schools; emergency management; health, mental health, and physical education; data collection; special populations; and emerging issues. The conference targets potential OSDFS grantees, juvenile justice practitioners, policymakers, education and prevention leaders, and school administrators, among others.
Registration is Free!
Registration for the conference will close on July 22, 2011 or when space is not longer available.

The event is part of a 55-community march in solidarity against sexual abuse and domestic violence, to stand up against the unacceptable epidemic of violence in Alaska, and bring healing and justice to victims and survivors. The message of the Choose Respect campaign is simple – “You are not alone, and you are not to blame.”
