Defense Based Advocacy and the Domestic Violence Movement Part 2/3

This webinar is part two of a three-part professional development series for community-based advocates, attorneys who work with victims of battering, and anyone interested in learning more about survivors charged with crimes. Facilitated by Cindene Pezzell, Legal Director at the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women, participants will learn how to define defense-based advocacy, explore why a defense perspective is necessary when working with charged and incarcerated victims and survivors at risk of arrest, review unique risks faced by victim defendants, and perform concrete defense-based advocacy strategies.
