The content of this seminar will inform criminal justice professionals the importance of victim centered approached, crime victims' rights, and legal options to enhance the safety of victims of these crimes.

Workshops include;

LGBT Domestic Violence, Trans 101, Public Policy Issues & Advocating for LGBT Victims of Interpersonal Violence
