Every day, domestic violence survivors are criminalized for actions they took to survive abuse they endured. After 10 years of community advocacy, the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act (DVSJA) was passed in New York in 2019 to offer more lenient sentencing for these survivors. The Survivors Justice Project continues to fight for decarceration through the implementation of the DVSJA.
Join The New York Women's Foundation and the Survivors Justice Project for a Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) webinar discussing the movement to decarcerate survivors of domestic violence. In this webinar, you'll hear directly from the Survivors Justice Project as well as members of The New York Women's Foundation's Justice Advisory Committee (JAC).
