EVAWI 2021 Sessions on Serving Diverse Populations: Saving Our Girls: Being Young, Missing, and Black and the Prevalence of Sex Trafficking
Hosted By: EVAWII
 
Date: April 6-8, 2021
 
Time: Time Pending
 
Description: The story of missing Black girls in Washington, DC in 2017 played a pivotal role in national news coverage about missing teens and, while officials tried to explain the numerous cases of those who went missing, far too many of them remain unresolved. The Black and Missing Foundation indicates that nearly 40 percent of all missing people in the country are people of color. Yet, today, the missing girls in DC receive little attention. Moreover, most of these girls come from marginalized, under-resourced communities and are primarily low-income, which in Washington DC, a city of haves and have-nots, exposes a part of the capital the rest of America may rarely see. A deeper, more nuanced problem, that includes at-risk Black girls, whose lives and struggles sometimes involve sex trafficking, that is often ignored.

2021 Sex Offender Management Webinars: Developing a Comprehensive Approach to Sex Offender Management to Keep Your Community Safe
Hosted By: National Criminal Justice Training Center Fox Valley Technical College
 
Date: Thursday, April 15, 2021
 
Time: 4:00am - 5:30am
 
Description: Public concern about the threat posed by sex offenders has inspired legislation and policies designed to combat recidivism and sexual violence. The field of sex offender management and treatment has become increasingly complex in nature and continues to evolve with more emerging research and robust evidence that supports best practices. Sexual offender risk assessment has advanced greatly in the past 20 years. We now have actuarial or structured clinical instruments that help identify who we should be most concerned about regarding risk to reoffend. We know that effective community supervision and treatment of sex offenders while staying victim centered is the cornerstone of community safety and victim protection. The collaboration of treatment, supervision, law enforcement registration, and the community at large can increase the offender’s chances of a pro-social non-offending lifestyle.

Collaborative Solutions: Pitfalls of Housing Prioritization: Considerations of Power and Culture
Hosted By: APIGBV - Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence

Date: 4/20/2021

Time: 11:00 AM - PT/ 4:00 AM - ChST
 
Description: In community contexts with limited and inequitable long-term housing access, housing prioritization usually involves multiple community institutions coordinating the distribution of scarce housing resources to those in greatest need. Three key influential factors are fundamental to this process: 1) the power of identification, determining who is deemed deserving of a resource; 2) the power of choice, deciding what people get; and 3) the power of distribution, choosing how they get it. To facilitate the prioritization process, housing practitioners use assessments in an effort to ensure equitable resource distribution. Next in our Special Series on Coordinated Entry, this webinar will explore power-laden assumptions in the prioritization process and how it subsequently influences survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Presenters will describe the “pitfalls” of housing prioritization and will offer strategies to mitigate them. Presenters: Nkiru Nnawulezi, University of Maryland, Baltimore County Tiffany Duvernay-Smith, Speak Up Advocate Michele Williams, Technical Assistance Provider Michele S. Williams, LLC.

The American Rescue Plan and Cash Assistance for Families that Include Immigrants
Hosted By: APIGBV - Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence

Date: April 27, 2021

Time: 4:00 PM - ET/ 6:00 AM - ChST
 
Description: What the American Rescue Plan (ARP) will mean for states and local governments is slowing coming into focus. What is clear is that states will still need to play a role in maximizing the reach of benefits and filling gaps that arise. As in past federal relief packages, immigrants who are undocumented are excluded from some key forms of assistance such as stimulus payments and enhanced unemployment insurance. Today you’ll hear from four advocates who have been at the forefront of efforts by state advocates to push policymakers to provide the resources and assistance that excluded families and workers need. Each will describe the advances their coalitions were able to secure and then discuss and answer questions about the barriers and landmines they needed to overcome.

Speakers include:
Margaret Babayan, Senior Policy Analyst with the Washington State Budget and Policy Center
James C. Jimenez, Executive Director of New Mexico Voices for Children
David Kallick, Deputy Director and Director of Immigration Research of New York’s Fiscal Policy Institute
Kathy White, Deputy Director of the Colorado Fiscal Institute

Let’s Connect: Questions and Conversations Around Preventing Sexual Harassment in Virtual, At-Home Workspaces and Educational Settings
Hosted By: Prevent Connect

Date: 4/28/2021

Time: 11:00 AM -PT/ 2:00 PM - ET / 4:00 AM - ChST
 
Description: Workplaces and educational settings look and operate much differently now than they did prior to March 2020 due to many people creating home work spaces to adapt to stay-at-home orders to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. During the COVID-19 pandemic, concerns over sexual harassment in virtual work and educational settings have sprouted as workers and students stay home and are isolated. How can prevention practitioners pivot the work they’ve done to prevent sexual harassment in in-person spaces to fit this new context? Join PreventConnect and guests from the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault, EVERFI, and Futures Without Violence for a conversation exploring possibilities for preventing sexual harassment in virtual, at-home workplaces and educational settings. Guests will discuss unique risk factors for virtual sexual harassment and implications for prevention, as well as brainstorm ways to adapt prevention-focused policies and practices to this new environment.
 
 
Neurobiology Applications for Community Supervision Professionals in Interpersonal Violence
Hosted By: National Criminal Justice Training Center Fox Valley Technical College
 
Date: Wednesday, April 28, 2021
 
Time: 4:00am - 5:30am
 
Description: Over 80% of all people under supervision in the criminal justice system have experienced trauma or show symptoms of trauma. Additionally, probation, parole and victim/survivor service providers encounter a high percentage of victim/survivors that are experiencing trauma. It is critically important for criminal justice professionals to have skills to recognize and address trauma. Without being trauma-informed, we miss a vital component of responsivity when attending to client and victim/survivor needs. During the webinar, you will learn about the foundation of trauma, the impact of trauma on the brain, and how to recognize symptoms in ourselves and others. We will also cover what it means to be trauma-informed in every interaction as well as strategies to effectively support ourselves and others through a trauma-response.

Promoting a Human Rights Framework Reaching and Supporting Latin@ Survivors
Hosted By: NACDV

Date: Thursday, April 30, 2021

Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM - EST/ 3:00 - 4:30 AM - ChST
 
Description: In diverse communities, like Latin@ communities, survivors of gender-based violence experience additional barriers to safety both from systems and abusers that make it difficult to access services for safety and healing. This webinar discusses how advocates can help Latina@ survivors think through and navigate safety options. Before delving into these options, we provide a space to discuss culture more broadly through a human rights framework and how culturally responsiveness is important for all interactions with survivors. We will also discuss how culture compounds trauma and how culture can also be a source of strength for Latina@ survivors and communities.

By the end of this presentation participants will be better able to:

Assess culturally specific barriers survivors may face and identify strategies for overcoming those challenges.
Understand more of Latin@/x lived experiences and barriers to safety.
Enhance access to services by fostering more culturally responsive systems of advocacy, criminal justice professionals and social services.

This webinar will also be presented in Spanish.

Time: 4:00AM ChST
 
Description: There are many benefits of working as part of a multidisciplinary team, but it also brings ethical challenges as a result of conflicting values and roles. This webinar will examine ethical issues as they apply to members of multidisciplinary teams. Ethical decision making refers to the process of evaluating and choosing among alternatives in a manner consistent with ethical principles. Ethical principles are the fundamental ground rules of decision making, not just factors to consider. Any decision made in a case has ethical implications for the team, and reflects the decision maker's sensitivity and commitment to the team concept. Each member of a team that is affected by a decision will deal with the consequences of that decision. This concept reinforces our professional obligation to make all reasonable efforts to anticipate possible consequences and take reasonable steps to avoid unjustified harm to others
 
 
National Briefing - Addressing the National Crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women: Advocacy in Action
Hosted By: NIWRC - Nationa Indigenous Women's Resource Center

Date: 4/30/2021

Time: 5:00 AM - 6:30 AM ChST
 
Description: The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) invites you to a briefing to understand the complex and ongoing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) crisis. The current systemic response to violence against Native women is inadequate and the rate at which we are losing our women is devastating to our tribal communities and to the Nation as a whole. Insufficient resources and lack of clarity on jurisdictional responsibilities have exacerbated efforts to locate those who are missing. The federal Indian legal framework is complex and creates many barriers for victims and Tribes working to protect their citizens. Moreover, resources are scarce, and culturally appropriate services are practically non-existent. Please join us to listen to survivor family members impacted by MMIW, local level tribal responses from victim service providers, and the tribal judicial branch. Because tribal sovereignty and safety for Native women are wholly intertwined, we will share national policy issues and recommendations in support of Tribal Nations to enhance safety for Native women. This briefing is made possible by Grant Number 90EV0452 from the Administration of Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The opinions, findings, conclusions and recommendations expressed are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
