What is “Community Assessment” and How Can it Benefit My Community? @ Webinar
Nov 13 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

A goal of many OVW grantees is to change institutional practices that give rise to poor outcomes for survivors of violence against women. Praxis International offers methods and tools for activists and representatives from institutions that process “cases” to move toward approaches that reform the ongoing work routines that ultimately shape case outcomes. The tools avoid blaming individuals for failing to protect victims. A Community Assessment emphasizes understanding how work is organized in ways that impede attention to victim safety and well-being and to offender accountability. Practitioners and advocates work side by side to analyze policies, case files, and the steps in case processing in order to identify concrete points of change.  This webinar will provide an overview of the tools available and how they might benefit your community’s efforts to improve responses to violence against women.
