Incarcerated Victims of Sexual Violence

Incarcerated Victims of Sexual Violence

Hosted by Fairfax County, Department of Family Services – Domestic and Sexual Violence Services

Incarcerated individuals face much higher rates of sexual violence and are also disproportionately likely to have been sexually abused before incarceration. Just Detention International will explain the incidence and dynamics of sexual abuse in detention and provide guidance on addressing the impact of sexual violence on incarcerated survivors, including the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards. JDI will also discuss how to challenge cultural assumptions about sexual violence in detention so “rape is not part of the penalty.” Register now
