The Cycle of Control & Ending Sexual Abuse in Confinement

Play Video

If someone tells you they have been sexually abused in detention, do you know what to say? What about confidentiality and PREA? In this town hall, Linda McFarlane of Just Detention International will share about what she has learned in her nearly two decades of working to end sexual abuse in detention. The Prison Rape Elimination Act, understanding trauma, handling disclosures, and confidentiality will be discussed through the lens of real life testimonies from survivors.
