PSU Women's Resource Center says
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.
