AEquitas is offering a couple webinars this month. The one that is probably of widest interest is the webinar being held May 27th from 2-03:30 pm ET: Gang-Related Violence Against Women and Girls. From the site:

This webinar will examine gang-related violence among teens and young adults, gang culture, and the gang member as an abuser. The session will also review abduction, recruitment, and the violence involved in the sexual exploitation of young women. Attendees will learn about the violence, tactics, and recruitment methods utilized by gangs and will receive recommendations of appropriate victim-centered criminal justice responses to address gang-related violence against women and girls.

And for our prosecutor readers, check out The History of Evidence Based Domestic Violence Prosecution: Redefining Modern Evidence Based Prosecutions through Historical Frameworks. It will be held May 6th, from 2-3:30 pm ET. From the site:

This webinar examines the history and development of evidence based prosecution of domestic violence cases. Following the examination of the history of evidence-based prosecution this webinar will identify how Crawford v. Washington and its progeny have impacted the prosecution of domestic violence cases with non-participating victims. The webinar will then describe tools and strategies for successfully prosecuting these difficult cases and the practical steps necessary to achieving victim safety and offender accountability. Specific topics will include: The evolution and history of evidence based domestic violence prosecutions in the United States; Modern Contextual Analysis of Domestic Violence Cases, Effective Investigation, Law Enforcement Training, Collaborating with Community Partners, and modern best practices to achieve evidence based prosecutions through the Use of Non-testimonial Statements, Forfeiture by Wrongdoing, and Forfeiture Crimes, and modern Coordinated Community Responses.
