|Legal advocacy and representation in the civil justice arena is a critical complement to the remedies and rights available to sexual assault victims through the criminal justice process. After completing this webinar, participants will be able to identify some of the unique issues confronted by victims of non-intimate partner sexual assault, and better understand what advocates, lawyers, and other responders can do to access civil remedies to promote victim healing and recovery. The webinar will address victims' rights and remedies in the employment, housing, privacy, education, immigration, safety, and other arenas, and provide participants with the opportunity to explore how to "issue spot" victim needs and develop strategies to meet them. Join VRLC Deputy Director Lindy Aldrich and Staff Attorney Kelsey Worline for this foundational webinar.
