Development and Implementation of Domestic Violence High Risk Teams in Rural Communities

Development and Implementation of Domestic Violence High Risk Teams in Rural Communities

When evaluating domestic violence lethality, research demonstrates that location matters. For example, rural women endure more severe violence and experience a higher risk of lethality. Delayed law enforcement response times, coupled with greater distances to life-saving medical intervention, increases the risk of fatality. Domestic Violence High Risk Teams are essential in rural areas as a result, yet few communities have them in place. This session will help organizations determine which partners to include in their high-risk team, as well as how to overcome the various challenges of collaboration. The presenters will review the strategies they have implement to successfully to domestic violence cases in rural communities.

Saving Our Girls: Being Young, Missing, and Black and the Prevalence of Sex Trafficking

Saving Our Girls: Being Young, Missing, and Black and the Prevalence of Sex Trafficking

The story of missing Black girls in Washington, DC in 2017 played a pivotal role in national news coverage about missing teens and, while officials tried to explain the numerous cases of those who went missing, far too many of them remain unresolved. The Black and Missing Foundation indicates that nearly 40 percent of all missing people in the country are people of color. Yet, today, the missing girls in DC receive little attention. Moreover, most of these girls come from marginalized, under-resourced communities and are primarily low-income, which in Washington DC, a city of haves and have-nots, exposes a part of the capital the rest of America may rarely see. A deeper, more nuanced problem, that includes at-risk Black girls, whose lives and struggles sometimes involve sex trafficking, that is often ignored.

We will discuss vast considerations that should be vetted before a product or tool should be recommended. This course will explore the history and governance that oversee victim data, describe the technology types used, look at liabilities faced by the recommending entity, discuss the consequences of user experience, legal proceedings and how the information interacts with the case, and community access and inclusion.
