Sexual & Domestic Violence in the LGBTQ community is something just recently starting to be discussed. Due to the systemic discrimination often experienced by members of the LGBTQ community, survivors may avoid law enforcement even to report. If they do risk reporting, the negative consequences can be traumatic as they experience law enforcement and a criminal justice system that often blames and mistreats these survivors.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
1. A brief 101 on the LGBTQ community
2. Experiences of LGBTQ sexual & domestic violence
3. Challenges that LGBTQ individuals face when dealing with law enforcement around reporting
4. Potential solutions and alternatives that can be implemented regarding these challenges
