(In Person Attendee) "Alive But Still Not Free": Introduction to Advocacy for Criminalized Survivors of Domestic Violence

Survivors of domestic violence often have a complicated relationship with the criminal justice system. Recent research suggests up to 77% of incarcerated women are survivors of domestic violence.

Navigating these complexities can be challenging for advocates seeking to provide effective advocacy to criminalized survivors. This hybrid training is the first in a two-part training series designed to help advocates better understand and support criminalized survivors of domestic violence.

Topics included in the training are:

·       Challenges faced by criminalized survivors in access help through domestic violence agencies and the legal system.

·       Current legal remedies available to criminalized survivors.

·       Ways to enhance effective advocacy for criminalized survivors.
