“The North Carolina Approach: Creating and Navigating New Relationships to Better Serve Incarcerated Survivors of Sexual Assault” will be held four times in June and is designed for jail personnel who are PREA point people, advocates who are doing PREA work, sexual assault program managers, and Executive Directors.
NCCASA has partnered with Our VOICE in the creation of manual to assist rape crisis centers around relationship building with jails for PREA. The training will highlight this new resource, teach advocates how to begin a relationship with their local jails & how to maintain that relationship over time, and to provide resources & materials to advance your efforts in serving incarcerated survivors of sexual assault. Please share this information with your PREA contact people at your jail- the training will be most effective if advocates and jail personnel attend together!
