Sexual Assault Victim Rights Across Campus, Civil, and Criminal Justice Systems
Sexual assault survivors are often in the position of navigating multiple systems in response to an assault. For example, a crime victim may simultaneously be a student, a victim/witness in a criminal complaint based on the same incident, and a petitioner seeking civil protective orders against the respondent
This seminar will address strategies for service providers to effectively support implementing a survivor-centered response to sexual assault crime victims’ rights across campus, civil, and criminal justice systems.
Attorney General Rosenblum will open the event, followed by a panel of local experts including:
- Rod Underhill, Multnomah County District Attorney
- Meg Garvin, Executive Director of the National Crime Victim Law Institute
- Phil Zerzan, Chief of PSU Campus Public Safety
- Stacy Hankin, Attorney at Victim Rights Law Center
- Julie Caron, PSU Title IX Coordinator
- Letitia Wilson, Executive Director of Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence
Who should attend: prosecutors, criminal justice based advocates; community advocates; law, pre-law, criminology, public health, social work, public administration students, and anyone interested in learning more about crime victims' rights will benefit from this seminar.
