Training and Event Calendar
November – December 2013
As part of the Legal Assistance for Crime Victims: An OVC Capacity Building Initiative, OVC TTAC and the National Crime Victim Law Institute are working collaboratively to expand the availability of pro bono and no-cost legal assistance for victims of crime nationally. Part of that collaboration includes developing and delivering a series of webinar trainings.
This training will focus on the different justice systems that a human trafficking victim may be involved in and how to best serve victims who may be navigating various systems.

|This webinar will address the current legal issues impacting victims of domestic violence, including lack of housing and employment protections, barriers in criminal justice intervention, limited access to safe divorce and separation, and child custody and visitation concerns.|
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.
