Every month, Just Detention International holds office hours by teleconference for advocates to discuss issues that come up in their work helping incarcerated survivors of sexual abuse. This month’s office hours, on Thursday, February 28, 2019, from 2:00-3:00 pm EST, will focus on protecting the confidentiality of your communications with incarcerated survivors. Carol Schrader, a staff attorney at the Victim Rights Law Center, will discuss their new tip sheet, Eliminating Bars as Barriers. Advocates who call in are welcome to raise questions about this topic or any other that is related to providing services to incarcerated survivors.
You can join the office hours by telephone. Anyone is welcome to register for the session, but it will be most useful for state sexual assault and domestic violence coalition representatives, rape crisis counselors, and other advocates. Participants can register by emailing Christian Vien at email@example.com. Registration is limited to 40 participants, so if you are interested in participating, please sign up as soon as possible. You will receive dial-in information once your registration is confirmed.
