Women at the Crossroads: DV Survivors with Criminal Justice Involvement, Part 2 @ NCDBW Webinar
Sep 23 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Part 2 of a 2 part series.

At year-end 2007, there were more than 1.27 million women in prison or jail, or on parole or probation in the U.S. As of 2009, approximately two-thirds of women in state prison were incarcerated for non-violent offenses including drug, property, or public order offenses. According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 3 in 10 women in the U.S. have experienced physical or sexual violence and/or stalking by a partner. Histories of economic and social marginality, substance abuse, mental illness, physical and sexual abuse in childhood and/or as an adult (including adulthood abusive families and battering relationships) have contributed to women’s criminal justice involvement. Connecting reentering women with community-based support services designed to deal with their unique challenges is critical to their long-term success.

The Changing Racial Dynamics of Women’s Incarceration @ BWJP Webinar
Sep 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

In February, The Sentencing Project released the report, The Changing Racial Dynamics of Women’s Incarceration, written by Marc Mauer.  This webinar, presented by the report’s author, will discuss the major findings of the report including how from 2000 to 2009 there was a dramatic shift in the racial composition of the women’s prison population and that incarceration rates for African-Americans dropped sharply from 2000 to 2009, especially for women, while the rate of imprisonment for whites and Hispanics rose over the same decade.  The declining rates for African-Americans represent a significant shift in the racial makeup of America’s prisons and suggest that the disparities that have long characterized the prison population may be starting to diminish.  Mr. Mauer will discuss reasons for these changes in racial disparity among women in prison and offer recommendations needed in order to better understand the possible reasons for the changes and to address racial disparities in the use of incarceration.

Civil and Criminal Protection Orders and the Role of Probation/Parole @ Webinar
Sep 26 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Criminal no-contact orders and civil protection orders are in place for many defendants/respondents who are under the supervision of probation/parole departments.  This teleconference explores the role probation/parole officers can play in keeping victims safe while highlighting supervision efforts that can be made by other allied professionals.  Through discussion of the types of orders, how and where violations are enforced, and the obligations required, the participants will learn about the unique role that probation/parole employees play in keeping a survivor safe, while discussing options available when jurisdictions do not have probation/parole staff available to assist in supervision for protection order respondents/defendants.
