Meeting the Needs of Justice-Involved Women: Specialized Court Responses to Victim-Defendants

March 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Webinar from the Center for Court
Innovation
Meeting the Needs of Justice-Involved Women:
Specialized Court Responses to Victim-Defendants
Thursday, March 30th / 3:00 p.m. EST (90 minutes)
Content: Research on justice system responses has shown that a one size-fits-all approach is not
effective. For female defendants, it is especially critical that their needs are met in an individualized,
gender-responsive way. Justice-involved women have complex histories of trauma and abuse that
can be masked if courts aren’t assessing them effectively. This can be complicated further when the
line between victim and defendant blurs, particularly in cases involving intimate partner violence and
human trafficking.
This webinar will discuss best practices for working with justice-involved women. It will highlight the
work of the Queens Human Trafficking Intervention Court in New York, which has a Hidden Victims
Project that identifies victims of human trafficking and links them to services.
Faculty: Robyn Mazur, Center for Court Innovation, Afua Addo, Center for Court Innovation, Judge
Toko Serita, Queens Human Trafficking Intervention Court, New York
