This webinar, intended for rape crisis centers, provides tools to initiate a partnership with their local jail with the ultimate goal of developing an MOU and setting up a reliable and sustainable victim services program for survivors behind bars. It is designed for advocates and agencies who are developing a new MOU or negotiating improvements to an existing MOU.

This webinar will:

  • Increase RCC’s understanding of their roles and responsibilities in developing an MOU with their local jail
  • Offer tools for building relationships with jail staff for the provision of emotional support services mandated by the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)
  • Demonstrate examples of language that should be included and avoided in an MOU with a county jail
