The Legal System and How to Allow Sexual Assault Victims to Become Survivors

Free to Members | $15 Non-Members
A final confirmation containing the Zoom link and Access Code to join the event will be sent to ALL registrants 2 hours prior to the start of the event.
This program will highlight how lawyers and other professionals can protect due process rights and enable sexual assault victims to become survivors and thrive, rather than suffer. A renowned forensic psychologist will explain why trauma victims act and cope in certain manners that most people may view as not making sense. Attendees will hear an athlete’s point of view about the reporting process and what it’s like to stand up within your athletic community even when it’s hard. Attendees will also hear about challenges faced by lawyers who have worked with survivors and how they have overcome them, and attendees will hear from a judge who has been passionate about women’s rights as well as setting a new standard for the treatment of survivors in the courtroom. Lastly, attendees will hear from a former assistant district attorney who focused on gender-based crimes and how to better handle such cases.
