05-22-2020: Victims’ Rights Across Justice Systems

  • In the aftermath of crime victims may interact with a variety of justice systems, including criminal, civil, administrative and educational. For victims, understanding the opportunities and risks presented by each system so that they can make informed choices about their path forward is critical. Key things to consider: what remedies and resolutions are available in each system; what risks to safety and privacy are there from participation in each system; what, when and how often is victim information shared; which system and non-system actors are involved in each process; and what public and personal pressures are exerted on victims as they navigate systems. In this training, NCVLI Executive Director Meg Garvin will discuss these systems, the role an attorney can play in improving victim empowerment and improving outcomes, and facilitate a panel discussion of survivors who will share their experiences navigating justice systems.
  • Presented and Facilitated by: Meg Garvin, J.D., National Crime Victim Law Institute
  • Panelists:
    • Olivia Ortiz; RISE Victim Advisory Committee Member/Law Student, University of Washington
    • Lisbet Perez; RISE Victim Advisory Committee Member/VOICES Survivor Network Member
