慶祝15年前《監獄強姦消除法》的成立

  • 二零二一年九月二十九日

4年2018月15日是XNUMX日th 2013年,美國司法統計局的一項研究估計,在一年的時間裡,在拘留所中約有200,000萬人受到性虐待。

Today, the Office of Crime Victims Advocacy (OCVA) wants to acknowledge and honor those survivors, families and allies who told and continue to tell their stories and use their voices to exclaim that rape is not a part of the sentence for a crime.今天,犯罪受害者宣傳辦公室(OCVA)希望表彰並表彰那些告訴並繼續講述他們的故事並用自己的聲音宣稱倖存不構成犯罪的部分的倖存者,家庭和盟友。 These individuals have worked tirelessly to ensure that protections are in place to ensure safety for all incarcerated individuals.這些人員不懈地努力以確保採取適當的保護措施,以確保所有被監禁人員的安全。

In these 15 years, advocates, survivors and other allies have worked to not only create standards for all prison, jail and youth detention centers but also pursue a cultural shift in thought to recognize that incarcerated individuals deserve the same safety and support as any other community member.在這XNUMX年中,擁護者,倖存者和其他盟友不僅致力於為所有監獄,監獄和青年拘留所製定標準,而且還進行了文化上的轉變,以認識到被監禁的個人應享有與任何其他社區相同的安全和支持。會員。 The New York Times shared an紐約時報分享了 專欄 that powerfully documents the juxtaposition of our mainstream media and the realities of a survivor of prison rape.該文件有力地記錄了我們主流媒體的並存以及監獄強姦倖存者的現實。 This video shares a rape survivor's story in detail, please exercise care for yourself and others when viewing or sharing this video.該視頻詳細分享了一個強姦倖存者的故事,在觀看或分享此視頻時,請當心自己和他人。

2012年,首個PREA 標準 were released requiring detention facilities take steps to prevent, investigate, respond and provide appropriate medical and support services to individuals in their facilities.被釋放,要求拘留所採取措施預防,調查,響應並向其所處場所的個人提供適當的醫療和支持服務。 A vital part of these standards is the requirement that incarcerated survivors of sexual assault have access to outside support services.這些標準的重要組成部分是要求性侵犯的被監禁的倖存者必須獲得外部支持服務。

With the release of these standards OCVA, the Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs (WCSAP) and the Washington State Department of Corrections (WADOC) quickly began having conversations about what sexual assault advocacy services are and how we might engage those services in the Washington State prison system.隨著這些標準OCVA的發布,華盛頓性侵犯聯盟計劃(WCSAP)和華盛頓州懲教署(WADOC)迅速開始討論什麼是性侵犯辯護服務以及我們如何在華盛頓州使用這些服務監獄系統。 In the six years since the development of the PREA standards, this partnership along with the dedication of 14 Community Sexual Assault Programs (CSAPs), has developed processes and procedures and ensured that incarcerated survivors in WADOC facilities have access to sexual assault advocacy services in hospital, by phone, in-person and during some investigational interviews.自製定PREA標準以來的六年中,這種夥伴關係以及XNUMX個社區性侵犯計劃(CSAP)的奉獻,已經制定了流程和程序,並確保WADOC設施中被監禁的倖存者能夠獲得醫院的性侵犯辯護服務,通過電話,當面以及在一些調查性採訪中。

作為這項運動的領跑者,我們為成為聯盟和社區性侵犯計劃合作夥伴在華盛頓州為支持被囚禁倖存者所做的偉大工作的一部分而感到自豪。

OCVA繼續參與對話,以支持計劃在其本地成人和青少年拘留系統中實施這些服務的計劃。
