We are hosting a supplemental PREA webinar this month taught by Katie Reid, MSW. It will be on March 31, 2017, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM. This webinar will give an overview of the community collaboration and advocacy standards under the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA). Specific attention will be given to how SARTS (Sexual Assault Response Teams) and other community partners can collaborate with corrections institutions, how to support and sustain collaboration, and how to use creative approaches to overcome challenges. Attendees will be given information on one example of how a South Carolina SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) successfully collaborates with a local detention center.
