National Crime Victims' Rights Week Event - April 21, 2015

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.
