Youth who are incarcerated are vulnerable and are sexually assaulted at unacceptable rates while in custody. Survivors of color, particularly girls, are disproportionately incarcerated and impacted by this violence.

This webinar will examine the “Sexual Abuse-to-Prison” pipeline, how systems fail youth (particularly girls of color) at multiple levels, what reforms are needed, and what you can do to help bring these much-needed reforms about.

BASIC ADVOCACY TRAINING: "PRINCIPLES OF PRIMARY PREVENTION”

9:30am

Time9:30am - 4pm

LocationAction Alliance Training Center, Richmond

DescriptionPrimary prevention programs are focused on reducing or eliminating the first-time perpetration of sexual violence and initmate partner violence (SV/IPV). This means figuring out what factors make some people more at-risk to perpetrate SV/IPV, and changing or interrupting those factors. This training delves into the key concepts underlying this innovative work, highlights promising practices from the field, and includes an overview of Virginia's Guidelines for the Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence & Intimate Partner Violence used by sexual and domestic violence agencies throughout Virginia and across the country.

BAT trainings are designed for advocates working with people who have experienced/are experiencing sexual and/or domestic violence and are conducted by members of the Action Alliance Training Institute Faculty and Staff. While this series is designed for staff and volunteers of Sexual and Domestic Violence Agencies (SDVAs), the content is also helpful to allied professionals including healthcare providers, therapists/counselors, homeless services, faith communities, social workers, victim/witness assistance staff, and more. The trainings help participants learn about and practice many of the basic skills necessary for effective advocacy. Each Basic Advocacy Training focuses on a topical area.
