At CALCASA’s Campus Training & Technical Institute in Las Vegas, one of the themes that has been emphasized by most presenters is the necessity of campus coordinated community response (CCCR). Across the board — addressing bystander intervention, working with the justice system, attending a faith-based institutions, creating policies and approaching the needs of international students — CCCR is a key for strengthening campus responses to violence against women.
AEquitas, an organizations that provides prosecutors with resources to end violence against women, had representatives deliver presentations at the Institute. The presenters re-enforced the importance of CCCR. In the video, Jennifer G. Long and Christopher Mallios share their presentations and discuss their mission to improve the quality of justice in sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking cases by developing, evaluating and refining prosecution practices that increase victim safety and offender accountability.
As the Institute continues today, topics include alcohol-facilitated sexual assault, victim services, peer intervention and clinical forensic services. Right now, Joe Ehrmann, motivational speaker at Coach for America, is delivering his keynote.
