Healthy Masculinity Action Project Summit:

The Healthy Masculinity Summit is part of the Healthy Masculinity Action Project (HMAP), the most ambitious undertaking ever to spread the message of healthy, non-violent masculinity across the country. HMAP, a two-year action project, will develop new male leadership that role models strength without violence. Men who are strong and assertive, as well as caring and connected, benefit our loved ones, schools, workplaces, nation, and the world.

HMAP kicks off with the summit in Washington, DC, October 17-19, 2012. We will gather the best of the best – male and female leaders, from business to education, from policy to sports, as well as organizations working to prevent violence against women and girls and other forms of violence.

Join us for this national dialogue about healthy masculinity. Become part of the conversation.

Criminal Jurisdiction in Indian Country

Presenting a webinar session on Criminal Jurisdiction In Indian Country, with Dorma Sahneyah, JD, NIWRC Program Specialist, and Leslie Hagen, National Indian Country Training Coordinator, Department Of Justice, EOUSA/OLE.

In everyday life, a women’s safety depends largely on the local government’s authority to establish strong laws criminalizing violence against women and to effectively police, prosecute, and punish offenders convicted under these laws. In Indian country, federal legislation and case law have left tribal governments with far less legal authority to protect their citizens/women than any other local government. Join us to walk through the maze of criminal jurisdiction existing today in Indian Country.

Women with disabilities and Deaf women experience violence at greater rates than the general population. Despite this alarming reality, much remains to be done in terms of research and practical interventions to improve the responses of mainstream services’ to this problem.  Unfortunately, even less has been done to effectively respond to Latin@ s with disabilities experiencing violence.

The intersection of medicine and law can be challenging and, at times daunting for both professions. Medical care providers are often anxious about going to court and as a result may be ill prepared. Attorneys are faced with the interpretation of specialized medical data and inaccessible medical providers. We hope to address these concerns in this training by combining medical and legal faculties. We aim to provide information and education to those involved in presenting forensic evidence in court.
