[EJ WEBINAR]: Identifying & Addressing the Housing Needs of Sexual Assault Survivors
Trainer: Karlo Ng, Supervising Attorney -National Housing Law Project
Kelsey Worline, Staff Attorney - Victim Rights Law Center
When/Time: January 17 2pm -3:30pm
About the Webinar:
The majority of sexual assault survivors are victimized by a non-intimate partner and more than half of sexual assaults occur where the victim lives. Housing protections traditionally available to domestic violence survivors are often unavailable to sexual assault survivors. And those protections that are available to sexual assault survivors struggle to shift from the domestic violence paradigm and address the unique needs of sexual assault survivors. This webinar will provide detailed practice tips on how to advocate for housing remedies for sexual assault survivors. The presenters will discuss early lease terminations, emergency transfers, perpetrator evictions, and reasonable accommodations.
