Arresting Survival: Challenging the Survivor-Defendant Binary


Please join us for a conference to advance the conversation about survivors of intimate partner violence who face arrest, prosecution, and punishment as a result of their efforts to survive, resist, or protect themselves or others.

  • Hear from survivors and nationally-recognized advocates.
  • Gain tools and strategies to address survivor needs, and support community safety.
  • Explore promising practices for prosecutors, criminal defense practitioners, civil litigators, clinicians, and advocates.

CLE, a light breakfast, and lunch to be provided. Space is limited—please register early, using this link!
