EVAWI aims to highlight communities that are striving to achieve a higher standard of the “spirit of the law,” rather than simply meeting the “letter of the law” with the forensic compliance provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Join us for a quick, 30-minute webinar to learn about the wealth of information we provide on this topic, and identify resources such as background articles, sample laws, policies, protocols and other documents that can be adapted for use in your own community.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify, locate, and access EVAWI resources on forensic compliance.
  • Prepare to explain forensic compliance and respond effectively to challenges.
