Beyond Response: Preventing Sexual Abuse Behind Bars

Sexual abuse in detention is preventable. Well-run corrections facilities have the power to end sexual violence within their walls, but they can’t do it alone.

“Beyond Response: Preventing Sexual Abuse Behind Bars” takes an in-depth look at the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards on prevention, highlighting what corrections agencies must do to create safe facilities. The webinar features an advocate who talks about the prevention education program and support group her organization leads at a girls’ camp.

This webinar requires a basic knowledge of PREA and of the dynamics of sexual abuse in detention. For more resources on providing services to incarcerated survivors (including other webinars), please visit www.justdetention.org/webinar.
