Topic: Office Hours: By Prosecutors, For Prosecutors
Hosted By: AEquitas
Date/Time: Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at 4:00am ChST
Description: Calling all prosecutors and allied professionals! Connect with AEquitas Attorney Advisors and your peers on the third Thursday of every month to examine prosecution strategies, emerging issues, promising practices, and more.
Join us on September 15th for a conversation regarding sexual harassment in housing and the intersection between civil and criminal systems—led by special guest, Erin Meehan Richmond, from the Housing and Civil Enforcement Section at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). The discussion will focus on 1) the DOJ’s role in enforcing the federal Fair Housing Act, and what it is doing to combat sexual harassment in housing; 2) what sexual harassment in housing looks like, especially when it may cross the line into criminal conduct like sexual assault; and 3) how the DOJ and local prosecutors can work together to protect individuals from sexual harassment in housing.
If your office has a great practice in litigating these cases, or could use some help, then this is the Office Hours for you! This is NOT a webinar, but a chance to meet our experts to converse, brainstorm, and share best practices or challenges in a national conversation.
