Working Together to Enhance the Safety of Native Women: Addressing Trafficking and Prostitution as Crimes of Sexual Violence
This webinar provides an overview of the Full Frame Initiative’s project (FFI) to understand how people who have experienced domestic violence define success for themselves, and how others in the domestic violence field define success for survivors. Over two and a half years, FFI conducted 46 workshops with survivors and practitioners in mainstream, culturally specific and underserved communities, and 12 interviews with policy makers and funders, across California.
This webinar will address the multitude of factors that affect the safety and well-being of women and children living with domestic violence. This webinar will try to help society understand why we need to shift our focus from asking why women stay to asking “Why do men abuse women?”
Strangulation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault. This session will provide an in-depth examination of the mechanics of strangulation and suffocation from a legal and law enforcement perspective.
