Learn the Basics: The Prison Rape Elimination Act for Victim Service Providers

Have you heard about the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) but have no idea what the law does or why it matters? Or maybe you have a vague idea, but want more on what it means for victim services providers?

In this webinar, “Learn the Basics: The Prison Rape Elimination Act for Victim Services Providers,” participants will learn about PREA and the PREA national standards, which seek to end sexual abuse and sexual harassment in detention faci

Participants will gain an understanding of the basics of PREA, including the law’s history, its key provisions, and its impact. The speakers review the victim services guidelines in the PREA standards, covering the types of services that corrections officials must provide to incarcerated survivors.

Finally, the speakers discuss some common misunderstandings about what the PREA standards do and don’t require of victim services providers.

The 90-minute webinar is intended for staff at rape crisis centers and other victim services agencies who want to work with survivors of sexual abuse in detention. No other prior knowledge is needed.
