Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls National Day of Action, Uplifting the Voices of MMIW Survivor Families
Hosted By: NIWRC

Date: 5/6/2021

Time: 5:00 AM ChST
 
Description: The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) invites you to join us to honor missing and murdered Indigenous women and uplift the voices of surviving family members. In some tribal communities, American Indian women face murder rates more than 10 times the national average. In responding to this national crisis, we recognize the federal Indian legal framework is complex and creates many barriers for victims, their families, communities, and tribal nations. Insufficient resources and lack of clarity on jurisdictional responsibilities have exacerbated efforts to locate those who are missing. By learning from the experiences of surviving family members, the movement can work to achieve the changes needed to safeguard the lives of Indigenous women and strengthen the authority of Indian nations to protect their citizens. Over the last decade, awareness of this national issue has increased, but more must be done to stop disappearances and save lives. Please join us as we honor missing and murdered Indigenous women, increase our national awareness, and demand change at the tribal, federal, and state levels.

When Things Seem Out of Control: Crisis Prevention Planning with Dysregulated Youth
Hosted By: HO'OMALUHIA - IVAT - Hawaii Pacific Branch

Date: 5/18/2021

Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM ChST
 
Description: Helping youth identify their trauma reactions and prevent episodes of emotional and behavioral dysregulation is an important part of providing care that is truly trauma-informed. "Crisis Prevention Planning" is a process where caregivers collaborate with youth to plan for times when they become dysregulated. It involves efforts to develop a clear picture of the situations and stimuli that tend to trigger traumatic memories and episodes of intrusive re-experiencing, and efforts to identify the maladaptive coping behaviors the youth typically engages in. Crisis Prevention plans include information to help caregivers and youth pick up on the warning signs that precede these behaviors, and identify ways a young person can soothe or distract themselves when they are having trouble regulating. Crisis Prevention Plans help caregivers anticipate what they can do that is likely to be helpful and what is not helpful when the youth becomes dysregulated. Use of these plans has been an effective strategy for decreasing use of seclusion and restraint in residential care settings. This workshop will provide tools for crisis prevention planning with youth, including a template for a safety plan developed for youth in Hawaii.

New Frontiers in Investigating and Prosecuting Sexual Assault by Intoxication – Part 2
Hosted By: EVAWI - End Violence Against Women International

Date: 5/20/2021

Time: 5:00 am ChST
 
Description: This presentation addresses the issues that investigators, prosecutors, victim advocates, and medical personal often encounter in alcohol facilitated sexual assaults. Investigators and prosecutors face many hurdles, including the consent defense, perceptions about “he said/she said” cases, and victims suffering from memory loss, as well as challenges related to victim shame, embarrassment, and lack of trust in law enforcement.

This means that sexual assault by intoxication cases are some of the hardest and most difficult cases to investigate and prosecute. These challenges are not typically found in other types of crimes which adds to the complexity of the community response. In these cases, first responders, including health care professionals, are often challenged by a victim´s inability to describe the crime due to memory gaps, or other perception difficulties caused by intoxication. Together, these challenges can impact an investigation, and ultimately the opportunity to successfully prosecute a case.
 
Recognizing and understanding these challenges will help improve the criminal justice response while advocates and health care professions will be better able to support victims of these crimes.  However, understanding victims and how these crimes occur is only half the battle; getting a case into the courtroom is the other half. Many victims of alcohol-facilitated sexual assault delay reporting, often leaving investigators with the perception that they have little to no evidence. Yet another challenge is the misperception that false reporting is common, which has a significant impact on the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault. During this session, the presenters will share their 25+ years of experience, and lessons learned, to overcome many of these challenges.

Serving Survivors with Mental Health Disabilities
Hosted By: Vera Institute of Justice

Date: 5/26/2021

Time: 1:00 AM
 
Description: Each May, we observe Mental Health Awareness Month. It is a time to celebrate the resilience of people with mental health disabilities and honor their voices as they work to end stigma and increase access. This month also provides us with an opportunity to reflect on where we can improve our services to better serve them. Survivors of domestic and sexual violence with mental health disabilities still face significant barriers in seeking and receiving healing services, including more significant or unfamiliar responses to trauma and lingering stigma around their disabilities. Service providers must continue the work in ensuring survivors’ services are safe, welcoming, and accessible and that their experiences are centered. Join Olga Trujillo as they explore the needs of survivors with mental health disabilities and potential solutions for overcoming barriers to services that providers can implement to be more responsive to their needs.
