Improving Access to Justice for Survivors by Ensuring Meaningful Language Access in the Courts in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond (2)
May 18 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

May 18, 2020 – 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. CST

State courts have an obligation to provide equal access to justice for all people. This requires recognizing the added barriers faced by individuals in different communities and developing policies and programs to help close that gap. The National Center for Access to Justice has ranked the New Mexico Judiciary among the top states in the nation for its language access initiatives. This webinar will describe their multi-faceted approach for assisting survivors of Intimate Partner Violence who have limited English proficiency, are deaf or hard of hearing, have communication disabilities, or have low literacy levels. They will focus on how they are adapting to address these critical needs during the public health emergency and beyond.

This interactive webinar will highlight some of the following promising practices:

• In-court and out-of-court remote interpreting;
• A multilingual interactive digital avatar and courthouse kiosks which integrate artificial intelligence, voice command, speech recognition and other technologies, to significantly improve access to court services for underserved communities in New Mexico;
• Development of policies and procedures to allow for the acceptance and rapid translation of pleadings in languages other than English, including petitions for orders of protection, as well as translations of orders of protection and custody determinations; and
• Improved services at first point of contact, such as training and certification of bilingual judiciary employees and the use of live chat machines, to assist LEP individuals and those with disabilities.

In this webinar the participant will:

• Facilitate greater access to justice by fostering more culturally and linguistically responsive practices in the courts
• Highlight promising practices and procedures to improve court access for individuals who have limited English proficiency, are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, or have low literacy levels
• Identify ways to adapt and improve existing programs and services to operate under the constraints of the pandemic and improve access for individuals who face additional barriers

Webinar: Transgender Intimate Partner Violence at the Intersections of Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration

Transgender Intimate Partner Violence at the Intersections of Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration
June 1, 2020 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. CST
*This webinar is pending OVW Approval*
It is estimated that more than half of transgender people living in the US will experience intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetime (James et al. 2016). As in the cisgender IPV (C-IPV) literature, transgender IPV (T-IPV) is often presented as a one-size-fits-all phenomenon, where all transgender victims experience the same IPV tactics and barriers to escape.

Webinar: Gay Latino Sexual Assault Survivors : Best Practices To Supporting Nuestros Hermanos Part I
Jun 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 am

Part I: June 29, 2020, 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. CST

This two-part webinar serves as a primer for community stakeholders, advocates, researchers, and service providers who may interface with Latino sexual assault survivors. Participants will be provided with an overview of prior research of sexual violence towards gay men and the LGBT Latinx community, including victimization prevalence rates and known barriers for this population. Topics surrounding Latino masculinities, and heterosexism will be discussed in relation to their influence on gay Latino sexual assault survivors.  Particular emphasis will be placed on the way homophobia and racism (including anti-Black racism) affect the experiences of gay Latino sexual assault survivors during the reporting process and follow-up care.  Relevant policies and their implications for gay Latino sexual assault survivors will also be discussed. Dr. López will share his own research, which focuses on the barriers and facilitators encountered by gay Latino sexual assault survivors during the reporting process.  He will specifically highlight how homophobia and racism affected their decision-making process, and their experiences when reporting having been sexually assaulted to reporting authorities and in receiving follow up care. Lastly, participants will be provided with best practices for engaging with gay Latino sexual assault survivors and how to best support them in their community.

In this webinar the participant will learn about:

  • Identifying the unique challenges encountered by gay Latino sexual assault survivors when deciding to report having been sexually assaulted to authorities and the challenges experienced by gay Latino assault survivors when reporting having been sexually assaulted to reporting authorities.
  • Discuss the role that the intersectionality of their multiple marginalized identities determines the factors they consider when deciding to report and their experiences when reporting having been sexually assaulted to authorities.
  • Describe the ways in which community stakeholders, researchers, health care providers, and social service providers can effectively engage with gay Latino sexual assault survivors to reduce re-traumatization and engage with these men in a culturally responsive manner.
