Description: 

Teen Dating Violence (DV) Prevention and Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in youth relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.

The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore – they hurt not just the young people victimized but also their families, friends, schools and communities. Throughout February, organizations and individuals nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about healthy relationships, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse.

Description: 

Just Detention International is a international health and human rights organization that seeks to eliminate sexual violence in all forms of detention. "The Right Response: Addressing Sexual Abuse in Large, Urban Jails" is the third in a three-part series of webinars on providing services to survivors of sexual abuse in jails. This JDI webinar will help advocates develop a better understanding of the crisis of sexual abuse in large, urban jails. The session will review the obstacles to providing victim services in such facilities, such as the high levels of need among inmates. Participants will hear from expert speakers on how to conduct hospital accompaniments, handle hotline calls, and deliver vital-in person services. The webinar will also review the new opportunities to expand inmate services afforded by the Prison Rape Elimination Act standards, which are binding on jails nationwide. 

The session will feature a conversation between a community-based victim services advocate and the administrator of a large, urban jail who are collaborating on a program to address sexual abuse in the facility. They will discuss the benefits of working together, and offer tips on overcoming the challenges of working in city jails with many inmates. The session will conclude with a presentation on creating sexual assault response teams, followed by a question-and-answer session. 

The series is part of JDI’s National Sexual Violence in Detention Education and Resource Project, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. The first two webinars of this series can be found in the archived webinars section of this page.

Who Should Attend: 

This webinar is aimed at advocates and service providers – rape crisis center staff, counselors, and administrators – though anyone who works in the victim services field is encouraged to attend. Corrections officials, law enforcement, and other professionals in related fields are also invited.

Description: 

In 2009, over 11,300 untested rape kits were discovered in a Detroit Police Department property storage facility.  With funding from the National Institute of Justice, a two and one-half year project was begun to determine why the kits went untested and to develop strategies for preventing this type of crisis from reoccurring.Kym Worthy, Wayne County Prosecutor will discuss why the kits went untested for decades and the importance of utilizing a victim-centered approach when notifying victims that their case has been re-opened. In addition, she will provide insights into the investigative process and what prosecutors need to successfully charge and convict offenders in cold case sexual assaults. Any doubts as to the value of testing older rape kits will be quickly dispelled by the project results which have already resulted in the identification of numerous serial offenders.
