Hosted By: Victim Rights Law Center
Time: 3:00am - 4:30am
Description: This interactive webinar will engage participants in a deeper understanding of common attacks to a survivor’s credibility in legal proceedings through the lens of intersectionality, institutional bias, and oppression. We will cover the 4 I’s of Oppression, how various forms of oppression (i.e. racism/white supremacy, heterosexism, ableism, sexism, classism, and anti-immigrant bias) may present themselves in a survivor’s life, and our professional responsibility to understand and address institutional bias as practitioners and organizations. From the initial intake to presenting a survivor’s claims for relief, we will develop and take away strategies to lawyer in ways that center survivors, challenge institutional bias, and resist rape culture.
2021 Sex Offender Management Webinars: Are Today’s Registered Juveniles Tomorrow’s Adult Sex Offenders: Information Sex Offender Registry and Supervision Professionals Need to Know
Hosted By: National Criminal Justice Training Center Fox Valley Technical College
Time: 4:00am - 5:30am
Description: The passage of the 2006 Adam Walsh Act (SORNA) included a requirement to register juveniles who have been adjudicated for a sexual offense for the first time, although many states were already registering juveniles prior to SORNA’s passage. Join us to discuss the requirements of SORNA for registering juveniles including the changes that have been made through the Department of Justice’s Supplemental Guidelines. As jurisdictions decide whether to register and provide community notification on juveniles, information related to juveniles who have committed sexual offenses may be helpful. During this webinar, you will learn the differences between juveniles and adults who commit sexual offenses, including characteristics, recidivism, and responsiveness to treatment. Gain key knowledge about the juvenile population in order to make critical decisions in how to implement juvenile registration including information on how other jurisdictions have wrestled with this issue.
