01/12/2015 - Military Divorce and Intimate Partner Violence

When: 01/12/2015 , 2:00 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Military personnel and their spouses carry no exemption from the family-related issues experienced by their civilian brothers and sisters. Many of them are separated or divorced. They have, or want to obtain, custody or wish to exercise visitation rights. They might be paying support, be behind on support, or be in need of adequate support. When property division occurs, either in negotiations or at trial, the issue of military pension division looms large. Intimate partner violence complicates these legal issues and raises additional ones. Whether you work in the legal field or assist victims of military-related IPV, this webinar will enhance your knowledge of legal issues involving divorce and military and veteran families and the specific considerations when IPV exists in the martial relationship.

01/14/2015 - Housing Protections for Survivors of Domestic Violence in Rental Housing

When: 01/14/2015 , 1:00 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Last year, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 into law. The law continues many of the housing protections that had been provided by VAWA 2005 and further expands these safeguards in several crucial ways. For example, the protections extend to more federally subsidized housing programs, cover survivors of sexual assault, mandate emergency transfer plans, and require that housing providers notify applicants and tenants of their VAWA housing rights. The webinar will discuss these protections. The presentation will also provide an overview of the emerging issue of local nuisance ordinances being enforced against survivors, including the recent Norristown settlement. This discussion of nuisance ordinances will also feature an overview of fair housing protections for survivors. Finally, the webinar will address strategies for advocates in interactions with landlords who may not understand or respond to survivor needs. Attendees will be able to ask questions of the presenters.

01/27/2015 - Shelter(ing), Part 2

When: 01/27/2015 , 12:00 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: Based on the popularity of the first webinar conversation on Shelter(ing), we've created a space to continue our discussion on critical issues, including understanding the experience LGBTQ survivors have in communal emergency shelters, and what it has looked like for programs who have changed their emergency housing and advocacy models to be more trauma sensitive, culturally competent, and, in some cases cost effective as well. In this webinar, we will explore more fully what our work can look like when we see "shelter" as a verb, instead of a noun, how programs have made these changes, and the difference it has made for them in terms of providing services to LGBTQ folks (and other groups who may be challenged by communal shelter).

01/28/2015 - The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault

When: 01/28/2015 , 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE: National Judicial Education Program, Legal Momentum
INFORMATION: The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault will address the often overlooked link between stalking and sexual assault. Stalking is a crime that is often co-perpetrated with other crimes, such as domestic violence and sexual assault. Research supports a connection between stalking and sexual assault – both pre- and post-assault. In this webinar, we will explore the nature and dynamics of stalking, focusing on its intersection with sexual assault. We will also discuss ways in which this information impacts our responses to and services for victims.
