Webinar: Safe Schools, Safer Communities – Responding to Student Survivors of Sexual Violence Part One
March 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Part 1- Tuesday March 29, 2022; 1- 3 PM (US/AZT)
Part 2- Wednesday March 30 2022, 1-3PM (US/AZT)
Description: Schools should be places where students feel safe, supported, and are able to learn, but in reality, students are often subjected to sexual violence. Using various strategies, this training will focus on intersectional responses to sexual violence in education settings. Attendees will:
• Understand the scope of the issue
• Identify and analyze the most current Title IX updates and
• Recognize specific approaches different responders and institutions can take to address the problem
This training is appropriate for all responders working with sexual assault victims (e.g., victim service providers, criminal justice professionals). We also encourage victim advocates in school settings, students, school employees, and state lawmakers to attend. This webinar will be available in Spanish and American Sign Language.
